If you have not yet cast your ballot, you are encouraged to do so as soon as possible, as possessing time will delay the counting of your votes by the County of Passaic. Woodland Park currently has 42.6% of voter ballots already counted.
Ballots can be dropped off 24/7 in the secure drop box outside Borough Hall, 5 Brophy Lane. The box, monitored by cameras, is emptied daily by the County Prosecutor’s Office. In addition, the Passaic County Clerk offers in-person voting.
Voters who have misplaced, made a mistake, or never received their mail-in ballot can come to the Paterson or Wanaque office to pick up another ballot.
The Paterson (401 Grand Street, Room 130) schedule is as follows:
• Tuesday, Oct. 27, 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
• Wednesday, Oct. 28, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Thursday, Oct. 29, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Friday, Oct. 30, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Saturday, Oct. 31, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• Sunday, Nov. 1, CLOSED
• Monday, Nov. 2, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Tuesday, Nov. 3 (Election Day), 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Please note that voters will have their temperature checked upon arrival, are asked to wear a face covering, and observe social distancing.
Any questions: contact the Passaic County Clerk's Office at 973-881-4127 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The office staff is handling a high volume of calls. Voicemails and emails are being responded to within one day.
Please note that while two polling sites, in Woodland Park, will be open on Election Day, Nov. 3, you will only be able to cast a provisional (paper) ballot, which likely will not be counted for weeks after the election. The only voters who will be permitted to use voting machines are those who are disabled and cannot complete a provisional ballot.
Officials strongly encourage the use of the drop box in front of the municipal building for your ballot.
