Your voter registration application must be postmarked by Oct. 13th. This year, New Jersey is sending all registered voters ballots in the mail. You can also vote in person with an absentee ballot at your county clerk's office or on Election Day.
Only registered voters affiliated with a particular party may vote in its primary, but unaffiliated voters may affiliate at the polls on the day of the primary. See New Jersey Republican Party or Democratic Party sites for more details.
Some congressional seats, state offices and constitutional amendments may be included on the ballot.
Early Voting: Sept. 19th-Nov. 2nd (In-person absentee)
You can vote in-person absentee from the time the ballots become available until 3:00 pm the day before the election. New Jersey will send mail-in ballots to all registered voters. If you need to update your address please update your voter registration and ensure it is received by Oct. 13th. The absentee ballot must be postmarked by Election Day.
You may apply to change to vote-by-mail status without an excuse at any time. Either select permanent mail-in voter when registering to vote, or by submitting a county-based request for mail-in ballots.
