Gov. Phil Murphy on Nov. 19 signed Executive Order Number 198, extending some election-related deadlines. The order extends the deadline by which counties must certify the results of the election from Friday, Nov. 20, to Wednesday, Nov. 25 for those counties that are unable to meet the initial deadline because COVID-19 has had a significant impact on their boards of election staff and facilities, with only Ocean and Salem counties being eligible.

The order also extends, for all counties, the date by which statutorily required election audits must occur, from Friday, Dec. 4 until Friday, Dec. 11.
