How to Vote by Mail:
Each active registered NJ voter should have received a vote by mail ballot. Your ballot must be postmarked on or before November 3 and be received by your county’s Board of Elections on or before November 10.
OR: You can drop off your ballot at a secure ballot drop box, deliver it to your county Board of Elections office, or bring it to your polling place.
How to Vote at the Polls on Nov. 3:
There will be at least one polling location available in every municipality in the state and each county will operate at least 50% of its normal polling location capacity. Voters who do not receive a vote by mail ballot or who prefer to vote in person will cast a paper ballot at their designated polling location.
Voters with disabilities that prevent them from voting by paper ballot will have access to a voting assistance device.
Voting as a Person with a Disability at the Polls:
Before you will be allowed to vote with a machine, you will have to sign a certification attesting that you cannot complete a paper ballot.
