Mercer County Clerk Paula Sollami Covello announced today that sample Primary Election ballots for Mercer County are now available for preview on the Mercer County Clerk’s website.

Placing sample ballots for each of Mercer County’s twelve municipalities on the web will allow the public to preview candidates for State and local races on the ballot for Tuesday, June 4, 2013.  Under State law, a sample ballot must be delivered by mail to every registered voter prior to each election.  However, the County Clerk’s office has placed sample ballot information on the Mercer website as an additional convenience for voters.  To preview a sample ballot online, go to www.mercercounty.org and visit the County Clerk’s “Elections” section.  Sample ballots are listed on the right by town.

Sample ballots are not the same as “Vote-by-Mail” ballots, as they cannot be voted upon.  If you wish to vote by mail, you can download an application on the County Clerk’s website and follow instructions to obtain a paper ballot.  Or, you can visit the Mercer County Clerk’s office and apply and vote in person during regular business hours, from now until 3pm on June 3, 2013, the day before the Primary election.

The Mercer County Clerk’s Office continues its mission to assure that citizens have every opportunity to be informed about elections.  Should you have any question about a ballot, you may contact Bonnie Epps, Clerk’s Election Supervisor, at 609-989-6494.
