ONLY ADA Disabled voters will be allowed to use a polling booth on the November 3, 2020 Presidential General Election.


Active, Registered voters should be receiving their Vote-by-Mail ballot from Bergen County on or before October 5, 2020 to their registered address.

Old Tappan’s normal polling location will be open on the November 3, 2020 Election Day.  Voters who DO NOT COMPLETE their VBM Ballot and wish to go to the polling locations will be handed a PROVISIONAL (PAPER) BALLOT.  The physical polls will ONLY be able to be utilized by the ADA Disabled.  A Notice from Bergen County will be sent to all "Active" Voters notifying them of their assigned Polling Location - among other important information

THERE WILL BE NO PHYSICAL SAMPLE BALLOTS MAILED TO VOTERS PRIOR TO ELECTION DAY. The Sample Ballot for the 2020 General Election will be available, once established, on a website to be determined by the Bergen County Clerk.

As soon as you receive your VBM Ballot, you are encouraged to place it back in the mail - postage will be paid for.  If the USPS makes you nervous, then you are also encouraged to drop your VBM Ballot in one of many secured drop box locations throughout Bergen County.  Installation of drop boxes is anticipated to take place soon.
