Mercer County election officials announced today new polling locations and new local voting districts for Trenton, Princeton, Hamilton and Ewing.

Mercer County's Superintendent of Elections, Cathy DiCostanzo, County Clerk, Paula Sollami Covello, and Board of Elections Chairwoman, Joanne Palmucci jointly urge voters in those towns to check their sample ballots because it is possible they will have a new polling place or a newly numbered election district.

Every ten years the law requires that counties revise election districts due to population shifts based on the latest U.S. Census.  Consequently, many voters in these towns will now be in new election districts and have new polling locations.  The Mercer County Board of Elections, chaired by Joanne Palmucci, recently completed the process of election redistricting in the towns of Trenton, Princeton, Hamilton and Ewing.

This does not mean that every polling location has changed. Some voters may see no change at all in their election district, some others will.

There are two major elections scheduled this year, the Primary Election on Tuesday, June 5 and the General Election on Tuesday, November 6.

In the coming weeks, all registered voters will receive their sample election ballot for the Primary Election from the Office of the Mercer County Clerk.  County election officials reiterate that voters should check their sample ballot very carefully which clearly indicates their voting district and the actual address of their polling location.

For further information, on polling locations, contact Mercer County Board of Elections at 609-278-6522.  Voters can also find their polling location online by visiting the “Voter Information” section at http://www.njelections.org.
