Hackensack – The Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders have put together a video, which provides helpful voting information to Bergen County residents. This year - with few exceptions - Bergen County residents will be voting exclusively by mail. Working in conjunction with local election officials, the Freeholders compiled answers to the most frequently asked questions surrounding voting by mail. It is the goal of the Freeholders to increase turnout for the November election. It is their belief that regardless of which candidates residents choose, our Democracy is best served when we have an active and engaged electorate.

The video is available for cross-posting and embedding from the URL below.
