On May 28, 2013, the Korean American Civic Empowerment interns delivered 12 Vote-By-Mail applications to Deputy County Clerk Lauren M. Zyriek.

Vote-By-Mail has been in place since 2009, and it allows easier access to absentee ballots to anyone who is registered to vote in the State of New Jersey. The process of vote by mail is very simple: 1) apply for a Vote-By-Mail ballot and then 2) submit the vote-by-mail ballot. After submitting the application, voters will receive a Vote-By-Mail ballot package. It is critical  that one correctly completes the ballot and sends it to the Board of Election or the county clerk’s office in time.

According to Zyriek, “Voters are highly encouraged to register for Vote-By-Mail because it ensures those who might not be able to go to the poll themselves to be part of the voting process and have a say. The Primary Election Day, June 4th, allows voters to elect the candidate who will represent them in the General Election Day.”

The last day to apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot at the Bergen County Clerk’s Office in person is June 3rd, 2013.
