We encourage voters to cast their vote early as there is no reason to wait until November 3rd. NJ Board of Elections will commence the mailing of ballots starting next week. Ballots can be voted on immediately and sent back using the First Class postage pre-paid envelope. As First Class Mail is delivered within 3 to 5 days, a voter can check if their ballot was received by the Board of Election within 3-7 days after mailing the ballot. Voters can check the status of their returned ballot on or call the Board of Elections. Voters who do not want to use USPS can deposit their ballot in one of the 18 Secure Drop Box locations. Those ballots will be picked up directly by the Board of Elections on a daily basis.

Voting Machines at the Polls on Election Day are exclusively for blind and disabled voters who are unable to vote with a pen and paper ballot. All other voters are encouraged to use the Vote by Mail Ballot that has been issued to them. Please note, even if a voter goes to the polls on election day they will still vote on paper. The Provisional Paper Ballot cast on Election Day will have to go through the investigation process and will be counted after it is confirmed the voter did not submit their Mail-In Ballot as it is illegal to vote twice.
