“The investments Hudson County has made into our digital infrastructure has paid great dividends. We are proud to be the first County in the State to offer such a service,” DeGise said in a statement.

“We had great success with the creation of Hudson County’s Covid-19 Dashboard and are thrilled to capitalize on our information network with the launch of the 2020 General Election voting website.”

The website provides a quick and easy overview of polling places, generally located in public facilities, will be used for provisional ballot voting, ADA compliant machine voting and as vote-by-mail drop-off locations on Election Day for those voters assigned to that polling location.

“The website and its unique features will serve as a model for others to follow. In a climate of confusion and misinformation, it is important that Hudson County residents have the ability to access reliable, accurate material regarding the upcoming General Election,” added County Clerk E. Junior Maldonado.

Although voting for the 2020 November 3rd General Election will be conducted primarily via vote-by-mail ballots following an order from Gov. Phil Murphy (D), a limited number of physical polling locations will still be accessible.

Due to the decreased number of polling places, voters polling locations may not be the same locations utilized in past elections.

By simply visiting the 2020 General Election Website at vote2020.hcnj.us and scrolling down to the “Voting at a Polling Place” section, users can enter an address or facility in the search bar or click a location directly on the map to locate their polling site location and hours of operation.

Driving directions are also available, as are dropbox locations.
