Trenton, N.J. – As County Clerks have sent mail-in ballots to New Jersey Primary Voters this week, New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way and the New Jersey Division of Elections reminds eligible voters that they have three convenient ways to vote in the upcoming June 6, 2023 Primary Election, with information on each available at VOTE.NJ.GOV:
“Eligible New Jersey voters should know that they have three convenient, secure ways to cast their vote in the upcoming June 6th Primary Election,” said New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way. “Whether they choose to vote on June 6th, during the 3 day early voting period, or using a mail-in ballot, voters can find information about how to participate in the Primary Election at vote.nj.gov. Voters can check their registration and party affiliation, find the location of their polling place, county early voting sites, and secure dropboxes, and even view their voting history.”
New Jersey Primary Elections are restricted to voters affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican parties in New Jersey. Unaffiliated voters (those registered to vote but not registered with any party) who wish to participate in the Primary Election have the option of declaring a party affiliation at a county early voting site or at their polling location on Primary Election Day.
Following are details on the three ways to vote in the coming Primary Election:
1. At Local Polling Place on Primary Election Day
Eligible registered voters can cast their ballot in person at their polling place, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Primary Election Day, June 6.
Accommodations will be made for voters with disabilities.
Go to VOTE.NJ.GOV for polling places, listed on the Polling Locations page.
2. In-Person Early Voting
This option enables all eligible registered voters to cast their ballot in person, using a voting machine prior to Primary Election Day. Voters can choose to vote, in person, when it is most convenient for their schedule.
No matter where a voter lives in their county, they can cast their specific ballot at any of their county’s designated in-person early voting locations. County locations can be found at VOTE.NJ.GOV.
In-Person early voting locations will be open from at least 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3, and from at least 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 4. No appointment is necessary. Accommodations will be made for voters with disabilities.
3. Using A Mail-In Ballot
Eligible registered voters can apply for a mail-in ballot by following the instructions found at VOTE.NJ.GOV or contacting their County Clerk. Voters will not automatically receive a mail-in ballot to participate in the June 6 Primary Election. Instructions to vote by mail include:
Returning a mail-in ballot is once again as easy as VOTE, SIGN, SEAL, RETURN. Return options include:
