The potential spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID19) has made it necessary to prepare and plan for a variety of situations, including the election process. Burlington County Clerk Joanne Schwartz suggests residents to vote by mail, instead of voting in person at the polls on Election Day.


“Voting by mail ensures all residents can vote without traveling to a polling location in a safe and secure way,” stated County Clerk Joanne Schwartz. “This will allow that the election process to continue without interruption.”


Encouraging voters to vote by mail is also in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines ( to minimize direct contact with other people and reduce crowd size at polling locations.  


“I have always been an advocate for vote by mail, but now it is even more important due to the recent public health concerns,” said Schwartz.


Vote by Mail applications are available on the County Clerk’s webpage or can be obtained by calling the County Clerk’s Office at 609-265-5229 to be mailed an application.
