Election Day is Tues., Nov. 6... Cast-A-Can-When-You-Cast-Your-Vote


The Municipal Clerk’s Office is open and at work on General Election Day – Tues., Nov. 6, 2018.  Voters are reminded to bring their Sample Ballot with them to the polls – the Sample Ballot includes information on where you go to vote and a complete list of candidates seeking election to all offices – national, state, county, municipal and school board.  Voters can verify registration by contacting the Middlesex County Board of Elections at 732-745-3471.  Polls are open from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM.  Go to the Woodbridge Township web page at: www.twp.woodbridge.nj.us (Departments/Clerk’s Office) for voting information. 


And, speaking of voting... students from Woodbridge High School are again coordinating the Township-wide ‘Cast-A-Can-When-You-Cast-Your-Vote’ food drive.  So, before you leave home to vote on Tues., Nov. 6, grab a can… or two… or three… for drop-off at your polling location.  Donating non-perishable food is a great way to help our less fortunate friends and neighbors as we approach the upcoming holiday season.  Vote... And donate a can of food!!!
