UNION MEMBERS VOTE FOR UNION MEMBERS
Our union brothers and sisters are on the front lines fighting the coronavirus, working selflessly as health-care providers and as first responders. They are stocking store shelves, sanitizing every imaginable surface, caring for the elderly and disabled, laboring in manufacturing and transportation, and serving as community volunteers. The lucky ones are working from home. Others are worried about loved ones and grieving a sudden loss. Countless workers have no income through no fault of their own, and need relief from federal, state, county and municipal governments.
It’s more important than ever that working people have a voice in the decisions being made that affect all of us.
In these difficult times, it’s more important than ever that working people elect union members to public office. Let’s make sure to vote for leaders who share our family values and will place the interests of working families first!
Below is a guide to using a Vote-By-Mail ballot.
Your 2020 Vote-By-Mail Ballot
The COVID-19 coronavirus has changed elections in New Jersey in 2020. Gov. Phil Murphy’s Executive Order 105 moved many elections to May 12, and all of those elections are to be done by mail only. All polling places will be closed. If you were scheduled to vote in March, April or May, you will receive a vote-by-mail ballot automatically. There’s no need to apply. Here’s an example of a vote-by-mail ballot.
