HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The Hunterdon County Division of GIS along with the Board of Elections and Hunterdon County Clerk recently announced the launch of a new interactive web mapping app for Hunterdon County voters.
The app is the first of its kind for Hunterdon County voters, and it will enhance the county’s efforts to provide election and voting information to residents.
Commissioner, John Lanza, who also serves as the liaison to the Board of Elections said, “This interactive mapping app is an original, state-of-the-art technological tool. I applaud the Division of GIS and Board of Elections for collaborating on this innovative project, which empowers voters with real time knowledge of important election dates, where to locate their polling locations, complete with turn-by-turn directions.”

Hunterdon County’s election process is recognized as the best in the state, thanks to the efforts of the County Division of GIS, the Board of Elections, and the Hunterdon County Clerk. There are many ways for residents to utilize this new app and we encourage our voters to take advantage of this leading-edge resource.”
