All active registered voters in New Jersey will automatically receive their ballots in the mail, at the address where the voter is registered.
Then it’s as easy as VOTE, SIGN, SEAL, RETURN. How you return it is up to you.
Every active voter registered in New Jersey should receive a ballot in the mail. If it hasn’t arrived by October 12, track your mail-in ballot status online at Vote.NJ.Gov or contact your County Clerk, listed on the County Election Officials page.
You may choose to vote in person at your polling place, from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on election day, November 3, and you will be provided a provisional paper ballot. ADA compliant voting machines will only be available to voters who certify they have a disability that prevents them from voting independently on a paper ballot.
Remember, you can return your vote by mail ballot at your designated polling place on election day. Go to Vote.NJ.Gov for your polling place, listed on the Find Your Polling Location page.
You must be registered by October 13 in order to vote. Visit Vote.NJ.Gov for online voter registration or to check your registration status.
Visit Vote.NJ.Gov for full details, drop box and polling locations, and more answers to frequently asked questions. You may also contact your local election officials, or call the Voter Information and Assistance Line at 1-877-NJ-VOTER (1-877-658-6837).
If you go to a polling location to vote on Election Day, you will be provided with a paper provisional ballot. If you have a disability that prevents you from voting on a paper ballot, you will be provided access to an accessible voting device. Also, a voter may drop off their vote by mail ballot at their polling place.
The November 3rd, 2020 General Election is being conducted primarily by vote by mail. If you haven’t received your vote by mail ballot, please contact your county clerk.
If another person will be mailing your ballot, bringing it to a secure ballot drop box, or delivering it to the county Board of Elections, make certain that person completes the “Bearer Portion” on the envelope addressed to the Board of Elections before the ballot is taken from you. No person who is a candidate in this election is permitted to serve as a bearer. No person is permitted to serve as a bearer for more than three qualified voters in an election. It is against the law for anyone except you, the voter, to mail or transport your ballot unless the outer envelope is sealed and the “Bearer Portion” is completed.
