New Jersey Governor Reschedules Primary Election Until July
On April 8, Gov. Phil Murphy signed Executive Order 120 to postpone the federal and state primary elections from June 2 to July 7.
The executive order also reschedules any other election scheduled between May 13 through July 7 to be held on Tuesday, July 7.
The governor postponed the election due to the COVID-19 health emergency.
Additionally, postponement will allow state officials time to determine whether in-person voting can be held or if the election should be held by vote-by-mail.
