Voting I.D. Requirements

Some voters who registered by mail after after January 1, 2003 and who did not provide identification information or whose information could not be verified may be asked for identification. This need not be a photo id and in fact the sample ballot mailed to registered voters is a form of identification. For complete details and other forms of valid ID, see, "Voting I.D. Requirements" on the NJ website. Though this should be a rare case, voters should bring identification in case it is needed.

Vote by Mail

Mailed applications must be received in the County Clerk's office (not postmarked) by close of business no later than seven days prior to Election Day.

You may also apply in person to the County Clerk until 3:00PM on the day before the election. Those who apply in person will receive a ballot and without leaving the County Clerk's office may fill it out and deliver the completed ballot!
