Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 105 regarding upcoming elections against the backdrop of the State of Emergency in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  • All March and April elections will be moved to Tuesday, May 12
    Petitions may still be filed in person if complete but going forward the petition process will be moved online.

Customers are strongly encouraged to sign up for My Transit alerts and activate push notifications on the mobile app to receive the latest status of the system.

EVICTIONS
The Governor signed A-3859 into law, which explicitly provides authority to the Governor to issue an executive order declaring a moratorium on removing individuals from their homes pursuant to an eviction or foreclosure proceeding.  The Governor then immediately signed Executive Order No. 106, which imposes such a moratorium.  This move will ensure that no renter or homeowner is removed from their residence while this Order is in effect.  These actions come a day after the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac would be suspending all foreclosures and evictions for at least 60 days.
