Ewing Township in conjunction with the Mercer County Board of Elections and Superintendent of Elections are preparing for the July 7th Primary and working diligently to ensure that all voters and elections workers are being protected against the spread of COVID-19

 

Once voted and either mailed, deposited or delivered, all Vote-by-Mail ballots are then reviewed for counting by the Mercer County Board of Elections.  The Board advised voters to follow the instructions provided with their ballot, placing their signature where indicated.  For those voters with disabilities who cannot vote a paper ballot, each polling site throughout the County will be equipped with an ADA-compliant accessible voting machine per Federal Law.  Provisional ballots will be available for all other polling site voters.
