Our push to cover the local elections on the VOTE411 website is off to a strong start.

Huge thanks to Ted Dellinger (LWVTO) who is handling the website, www.vote411.org, which is gradually populating with local races.

Get Ready to Vote
Voter Registration Deadline
The registration deadline for the upcoming General Election is October 12, 2021. Be sure to re-register if you move, if you change your name, or if you have finished a sentence of incarceration. Remember - people on parole or probation can register to vote! Not sure if your registration is up to date? Check your registration status to make sure it is active and your information is correct!
Vote By Mail Application Deadline
In New Jersey, any eligible registered voter can Vote by Mail – you do not need a reason to request a Vote by Mail ballot, but you do need to apply. To receive your Vote by Mail ballot by mail, the application must be received by your County Clerk by October 26, 2021. Voters can also apply in person to the County Clerk up until 3:00 pm on November 1, 2021.
Casting your Vote-by-Mail Ballot
You can return your completed vote-by-mail ballot one of three ways:
1. By mail: Ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday, November 2, 2021 (Election Day).
2. Using a secure ballot drop box: by 8pm on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 (Election Day)
3. In-person at your Board of Elections office: by 8pm on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 (Election Day)
In-Person Early Voting
New Jersey voters are now able to vote early in-person, using a voting machine, at a limited number of polling locations. Early voting will be available from October 23, 2021 to October 31, 2021. During this time, the polls will be open from 10 am-8 pm on weekdays and Saturdays, and from 10 am-6 pm on Sundays. Early voting polling locations will soon be available through the NJ Voter Information Portal.
If you are currently signed up to automatically receive Vote-by-Mail ballots for all future elections but would like to cast a ballot in-person instead, you must opt-out of Vote-by-Mail. Opt-out by August 31st to ensure there is enough time to remove you from the mail-in ballot list. Contact your County Clerk to receive more information and opt-out forms. You can also contact the League of Women Voters of New Jersey at email@example.com and we will assist you in locating a form.
Voting on Election Day
Voters can also vote at their polling place on Election Day, Tuesday, November 2nd. Polls are open 6 am - 8 pm. Your polling location will be listed on your sample ballot. Voters receive sample ballots in the mail about a week before Election Day. You can also find your polling location below.
a Poll Worker
Poll Workers Needed
The Division of Elections, within the New Jersey Department of State, is seeking New Jersey citizens to help in their community by serving as poll workers during the Early Voting period and on General Election Day. Citizens of all ages, including college and high school students who are at least 16 years old, are encouraged to apply.
Training is required and will be provided, as well as compensation for each shift.
Shifts will be available during Early Voting (Saturday, October 23 through Sunday, October 31), and on Election Day (Tuesday, November 2).
