Yesterday, the Governor issued Executive Order 10E:
- Absentee voting eligibility during COVID-19 pandemic: Permits all voters in any election, primary, or referendum held prior to May 20, 2021 to vote using an absentee ballot, citing the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason. This is similar to the order that permitted voters to use absentee ballots during elections held in 2020. In addition, this order provides municipalities and regional boards of education with additional flexibility in scheduling budget hearings, meetings, and votes to account for logistical challenges posed by the pandemic.
