"As an organization whose mission is to empower voters and defend democracy, we stand in solidarity with all Black communities. The League shall do so not only by speaking out against racism in all forms, but by doing the work required of us to be anti-racist."

Enter your address to find your polling place, build your ballot with our online voters' guide and much more! With our voters' guide you can see the races on your ballot, compare candidates' positions side-by-side, and print out a "ballot" indicating your preferences as a reminder and take it with you to the polls on Election Day.
Our push to cover the local elections on the VOTE411 website is off to a strong start.  Members and other interested people stepped up to cover 30 out of the 35 municipal races in the county, Monmouth and Ocean freeholder races and many Board of Education elections. 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

Register to vote

Check your voter registration status

 

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

Apply to Vote By Mail

 

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 mmarks@lwvnj.org and we will assist you in locating a form.
