Information for the NJ Voter about the November 3, 2020 General Election.
Effective immediately as a measure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, candidates can now obtain signatures electronically on a nominating petition. Please be advised that these are only supplemental signature pages. A candidate/designee will still need to complete all of the required documents (i.e. Certificate of Acceptance, etc.) All of the statutory requirements will remain the same.
The petition’s respective filing officer shall develop the electronic procedures for signature verification, petition notarization, and submission of oaths to meet the requirements of current law.
THIS NOTICE WILL BE UPDATED AS NEEDED.
This week, New Jersey’s Division of Elections launched the state’s first online voter registration tool.
