Registered New Jersey voters have multiple safe options for voting this year.
Visit the NJ Voter Information Portal to register to vote, check your voter registration status, track your ballot, and more.
The NJ Voters Quick Guide, created by the League of Women Voters, also answers many questions.
Danny DeVito explains how to properly complete and submit your VBM ballot.
How to submit a vote-by-mail (VBM) ballot:
Mail using the postage-paid envelope; VBM ballots must be postmarked no later than Nov. 3 and received on or before Nov. 10.
Deposit the VBM ballot in a ballot dropbox in Bergen County any time until 8:00 pm on November 3. One ballot box is located in front of Ridgewood Village Hall. Other ballot box locations are here.
Deliver the VBM ballot to the voter's assigned polling location.
Disabled voters may vote in person at their assigned polling location.
Voters who received a VBM ballot may vote at their assigned polling location but they must use a provisional ballot. Election officials ask that voters use their VBM ballots if they can; there are far fewer polling locations and poll workers and therefore polling locations may have long lines.
VBM ballots must be received by the Bergen County Clerk by this date.
Voters can track their VBM ballots here.
