MORRIS COUNTY, NJ – Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi urged voters with simple questions regarding the election to use her website, noting her office is experiencing an exorbitant volume of phone calls.
“This is why we are asking the public to go to our website at www.morriscountyclerk.org with simple questions,” Grossi said.
There you will find detailed information on all aspects of this election, such as:
- ballot box locations,
- polling locations,
- dates when ballots were mailed, written instructions on what to expect when you receive your ballot package,
- methods of returning your ballots, and
- How to Vote,
- What to do if you receive duplicate ballots, ballots for persons who are no longer living at your address and deceased parties, and
- mail-in ballot updates.
An employee’s phone system recorded 2,008 messages over the weekend, according to the clerk. Additionally, the office is experiencing on average of more than 100 phone calls per hour on all election staff phone systems.
“We always want to answer all calls, and provide timely and accurate information, but with this unprecedented volume it becomes difficult. That is why we are urging people to use our website first before calling for routine questions,” the County Clerk said.
If, after looking at the website, and you still feel a need to call the clerk, call 973-285-6066. However, be mindful that the overwhelming number of calls coming into the office may require a longer than normal wait time.
