What is Vote-by-Mail?

NJ's Vote-by-Mail program gives all registered voters the option to receive an official ballot through the mail so they can cast their vote at a time and place that is most convenient for them.

Follow the instructions on the ballot you receive, cast your vote, and mail your ballot back or just drop it off in one of the many ballot drop boxes available throughout the county.

It's safe, simple, and secure.
