Vote by Mail

You may vote by mail in the June 2024 Primary Election if you are a registered voter. Voting by mail is accessible in New Jersey without the need for an excuse, and these ballots are referred to as mail-in or vote-by-mail ballots. To request a mail-in ballot via mail, the application must reach the County Clerk seven days before the election. In-person requests are accepted until 3:00 p.m. the day before the election. The County Clerk cannot accept faxed vote-by-mail applications unless from Military or Overseas voters due to the requirement of an original signature.

For those returning their mail-in ballot in person, it must be received by the County Board of Elections or placed in a secure ballot drop-box before the polls close on Election Day. If returned by mail, it must be postmarked no later than Election Day and received by the County Board of Elections within 144 hours (six days) after the polls close.
