NJFA News and Resources
June 29, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 virus, the NJ Primary Election was moved to July 7th and with that date quickly approaching, we wanted to share some helpful information about voting in the NJ Primary.

For safety purposes, registered voters are encouraged to vote by mail. Our friends at AARP NJ prepared an instructional video to assist voters in understanding how to correctly fill out and mail in your ballot. See the video above.

AARP NJ has also prepared a resource guide that has many details about voting on July 7th. You can find additional resources at aarp.org/NJVotes2020 or by contacting Election Officials in your County.

Happy 4th of July

It may seem hard to believe, but July is upon us and with that the 4th of July holiday. We'd like to wish you and your families a happy and safe 4th of July. Please remember to practice social distancing in order to keep everyone healthy. And remember that the NJ DOH has released guidance on outdoor visitation for nursing home and other facilities. Please read the newsletter from the LTCO for information on visitation and more.
