NJ Voting Info: Mail-In Ballot Voting in NJ

Every active registered voter is eligible to request a vote-by-mail ballot.

Voting by mail lets you cast your vote whenever it's convenient for you, and your ballot can be returned via secure drop box, by mail, or at the county board of elections office.


To REQUEST a vote-by-mail ballot for one or all future elections
  • MAIL: Send in application by 7 days before the Election

  • IN PERSON: Bring or fill out application at your County Clerk's office by 3:00 p.m. on the day before the Election

To RETURN your ballot and vote
  • MAIL: Ballot must be postmarked on or before polls close (usually 8:00 pm) on Election Day and received by your county’s Board of Elections on or before 6 days after Election Day

  • SECURE DROP BOX: Must be in drop box by the close of polls (usually 8:00 pm) on Election Day

  • BOARD OF ELECTIONS OFFICE: Must be received at your Board of Elections office by the close of polls (usually 8:00 pm) on Election Day



Your Voter Account will show you the status of your vote-by-mail request or your returned ballot.



Authorized Messengers and Bearers
Ballots can be sent to you or picked up by an "Authorized Messenger" (such as a family member; see application for more details) who will then bring it to you. You can also designate a "Bearer" to deliver your completed ballot.

Receive and return the ballot on the same day!
If you apply in person at the County Clerk's office, you can, if you so choose, fill out the ballot and give it right back to the County Clerk, who will make sure it gets to the office of the Superintendent of Elections/Commissioner of Registration and counted accordingly.

Vote by mail OR Provisional ballot
Once you apply for a vote-by-mail (VBM) ballot, you won't be able to vote in person at your polling place. If you are listed as having received a VBM ballot but go to your polling place to vote in person, you will still have the option to submit a provisional ballot, which the poll workers are legally bound to give you on request.
