From checking your voter registration to filling out and tracking your mail-in ballot, there’s a lot to know ahead of November’s election. The state’s hybrid voting plan means you can vote in person using a provisional ballot. But, for the first time in New Jersey history due to the ongoing pandemic, most votes will be cast through the mail. NJ Spotlight News Editor-at-Large Colleen O’Dea talks with Anchor Briana Vannozzi to explain the process and what voters need to know in order to make their voice heard.
Colleen O’Dea has spent her entire career reporting New Jersey news and won numerous state and national journalism awards and fellowships. She joined NJ Spotlight News in 2011 and now serves as its data reporter, as well as covering general assignment topics that include elections, politics, housing and corrections.
An award-winning journalist, Briana Vannozzi serves as the anchor for NJ Spotlight News. She's worked in several capacities since joining the news division in 2012, as interim anchor and senior correspondent after years of general assignment reporting as a multimedia journalist.
