Your Local Election Office will compare your signature on your voted ballot to the state records. If the signatures don't match, your ballot might be rejected. Please sign carefully.
New Jersey will send a mail-in ballot to every registered voter ahead of the November 3, 2020 election.
Voting by mail is not as complicated as you might think. There are only a handful of steps:
Any registered New Jersey voter can request an absentee ballot and vote by mail.
The signature on your absentee ballot application will be compared to the signature on your voter registration card to ensure they match.
Your signature on the return envelope will be compared to the signature on your voter registration card to ensure they match. If you forget to sign the return envelope, your ballot might be rejected. Additionally, if you hand-deliver your voted ballot you will need to show a government issued ID to the election official.
Contact your Local Election Office if you have questions.
This is the statewide agency that is ultimately responsible for New Jersey elections. You can contact them with questions, but your Local Election Office will probably respond faster.
