🔵 Here is where to go for primary voting in Ocean County and Monmouth County
🔵 The primary elections are June 6 but early voting in New Jersey begins June 2
🔵 There are less locations for primaries than there are for general election
It's that time of the year -- primary election season -- and the party votes can start getting casted on Friday in New Jersey all the way through June 6.
There are, as usual, less polling locations for the primaries than the general election each year so it's important to mark down where to go if you are voting in the primaries.

In Monmouth County, there are 10 early voting locations that'l open up this weekend from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm on Friday and Saturday and then 10:00 am until 6:00 pm on Sunday.
