Trenton’s March To The Ballot Box Event Held Today

October 24, 2020

TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Mayor W. Reed Gusciora, North Ward District 5 Committeewoman Crystal Feliciano, and Bernard McMullan, President of the Trenton Council of Civic Associations, will host the “Trenton’s March to the Ballot Box” on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at noon.

The march is meant to motivate Trenton residents to complete their mail-in ballot and return it to one of the four secured drop box locations in the city. In a call for unity and increased voter turnout, Mayor Gusciora, Mercer County Clerk Paul Sollami Covello, County Commissioner Samuel Frisby and other Trenton residents and community leaders will deliver opening remarks for the occasion.

“During the July 2020 primary election, there was only one secure drop box in the entire Capital City,” said Mayor Gusciora. “Now we have four in advance of the upcoming general election on November 3, making it easier than ever for our residents to express their right to vote by proactively completing and returning their ballots.”

Organizers and participants will meet at the Trenton War Memorial for a brief program and then begin to march to the secured drop box location at City Hall. Everyone is encouraged to participate, even if they have already voted.

“Given everything that has been taking place around us in the City as well as the nation, this is a positive step for everyone to come together and stand united for a common cause” said Crystal Feliciano.

The drop boxes are located at the following locations:

  • County Clerk’s Office – Courthouse Annex – 209 S. Broad Street, Trenton N.J., 08608 (in front)
  • Trenton City Hall – 319 E. State Street, Trenton N.J., 08608 (in back / near Municipal Clerk’s Office)
