New Jersey

Step 1: Apply

Can I vote-by-mail in my state?


NEW! As of August 14, 2020, New Jersey will automatically mail a ballot to every registered voter. Click here to register as a new voter or to check your existing registration. (It's always a good idea to double-check.) https://www.nj.gov/state/elections/vote-by-mail.shtml New voters must register by October 13, 2020.




I have a question that wasn't answered here.


Please call the county election office where you live. They are in charge of elections and should be able to help you. https://www.state.nj.us/state/elections/county-eo.shtml





Step 2: Vote-by-Mail

When do I have to mail or drop off my completed ballot?


Technically, ballots must be postmarked by Election Day (November 3, 2020) and received within 48 hours of polls closing. To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you return your voted ballot as soon as it arrives and no later than the middle of October. You may also drop your ballot at your local election office. It's a good idea to call and check first. https://www.state.nj.us/state/elections/county-eo.shtml




Does it require a stamp? Two?


Read the outside of the envelope to see if additional postage may be required. The US Postal service will deliver any ballot, regardless of whether or not it has the correct postage, or any at all. They will charge the local election office for any unpaid postage. https://time.com/4547550/absentee-mail-ballot-postage-stamp-postal-service-usps/




Can my ballot be dropped off at a polling site or dedicated drop box?


With the governor's new order, there may be drop boxes. Call your local election office to fine out. https://www.state.nj.us/state/elections/county-eo.shtml You may not drop your ballot at a polling site.




Is there any way to check if my ballot was received?
