Use NJ My Voter Record to check your polling place address and your vote-by-mail status

While every registered voter got a mail-in ballot in the 2020 election, that did not automatically establish vote-by-mail status for those voters in future elections. If you had signed up for vote-by-mail status prior to 2020, that will appear in your My Voter Record account. Otherwise, the "Mail-In Ballot History" section of your account will show the following: "Ballot request type: Single Election".

Check or sign up for your Voter Record Account:


1-877-NJ-VOTER - Call the NJ Department of State with voting questions or concerns or to report a potential election crime or incident of voter fraud.

NJ Voting Info: Mail-In Ballot Voting in NJ

If you want to vote early or are unable to get to your polling place in person, send in an application form for a mail-in ballot.

To get your ballot mailed to you in time for Election Day, application forms must be received by:
  • 7 days before the Election if by MAIL, or
  • 3:00 p.m. on the day before the Election if IN PERSON at your County Clerk's office.

Once you apply for a mail-in ballot, you won't be able to vote in person at your polling place. If you are listed as having received a mail-in 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.

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.

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.

Note: Voters who received mail-in ballots in 2020 as a result of the pandemic are not automatically enrolled for mail-in ballots going forward. Check your voter account to find out your current status. If you are not signed up for perpetual mail-in ballots but would like to be, check the box on the request form.

Ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received no later than 48 hours after Election Day.
