The most unusual Election Day in recent memory will begin Tuesday morning as South Brunswick is still recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
The township has announced one change in polling locations for Election Day. Residents who usually vote at Brunswick Acres Elementary School will now cast their ballots at Greenbrook Elementary School, located at 23 Roberts Street in Kendall Park. All other voting districts are at their regular polling places. The Clerk’s Office will be open at 5 a.m. Any questions should be directed to 732-329-4000 Ext. 7352.
The Middlesex County Clerk's Office reported two South Brunswick polling locations were changed due to ongoing power outages. However, the township reported that information is incorrect.
