How do I get my ballot?

Every registered voter in NJ will automatically receive a ballot in the mail. You should receive yours by October 5th. When you get it, open it up, read it over carefully, fill it out, and mail it back or drop it off.

How and where do I vote?

There are three ways to vote:

  1. Mail your ballot by dropping it off at any Secure Mail Ballot Drop Box. Find the drop box closest to you here.  In Newark the Drop Box is located in front of City Hall on the Green Street side.

This is what the Secure Mail Ballot Drop Box looks look like:

2. Mail your ballot through the U.S. Postal Service. You do not need to add any postage.  But be sure to your ballot is postmarked and in the mail by November 3rd for it to count (sooner if possible).

3. Visit your polling station on Election Day (November 3rd) to vote in person or to drop off your ballot.

Voting Rights Restoration:

People on parole or probation are now eligible to vote in NJ but they must register to vote before the deadline. Even if they have been previously registered, they must re-register. Please help spread the word and be aware if you’re helping out with voter registration. Anyone with any prior state (any state) or federal conviction can now vote if they reside in NJ!

Tracking Your Ballot:

True or False? –  You can track your ballot to see if it arrived?

TRUE.  Visit,  create your “Voter Account”, and then select the option to “Track my Ballot”. However, the site now has this message “Due to historically high volume, ballots deposited in Secure Ballot Drop Box locations may take up to one week to show up as “Received” and Ballots sent via US Mail may take up to two weeks to show up as “Received” in the Track My Ballot tool. 

TIP – the site works best by using your voter ID number.  You can get your voter ID number by checking the site “Am I Registered?” –

If you have any questions, please call Susan Mack at the League of Women Voters – 973-202-7153.

Please help spread the word!  

Remember: Drop off or mail-in your ballot by November 3rd.
