How To Vote In New Jersey

What you need to know to vote in the November 3, 2020 General Election...

How Can I Vote By Mail?

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.

1... Mail: It must be postmarked on or before November 3 and be received by your county’s Board of Elections on or before November 10.
2... Secure Ballot Drop Box: Place your ballot in one of your county’s secure ballot drop boxes by 8:00 p.m. on November 3.
3... Board of Elections Office: Deliver your ballot in person to your county’s Board of Elections Office by 8:00 p.m. on November 3.
4... Polling Place: Bring your ballot to your polling place by 8:00 p.m. on election day, November 3. Remember only you, the voter, can bring your ballot to your polling place on election day.

What If I Haven’t Received My Ballot?

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.

Can I Vote In Person?

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. Accommodations will be made for people with disabilities to use an accessible voting device. Remember, you can return your vote-by-mail ballot at your polling place. Go to Vote.NJ.Gov for your polling place, listed on the Find Your Polling Location page.

How Do I Register To Vote?

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.
