PARSIPPANY — Morris County Board of Elections is installing 15 new ballot drop boxes, an increase from five, and officials say they should all be in place by October, more than a month before the November 3 election.
The boxes are all outside and under surveillance 24/7. They resemble a USPS Blue Mailbox, but are Red, White & Blue, and display “Morris County – Official Ballot DropBox.”
Parsippany’s box is scheduled to be installed at Municipal Building, 1001 Parsippany Boulevard. The box will be placed outside the main entrance facing Route 287.
There will be a representative from the Republican Club, Democrat Club, and a member of the Morris County Sheriff’s Office collecting the Vote-By-Mail ballots (VBMs). They will be transported to the Board of Elections. All security measures will be followed when collecting and transporting the VBMs, officials said.
