Voting At The Polls On Election Day
Polling places are open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Anyone in line at 7:00 p.m. will be allowed to vote.
Voting at Your Designated Polling Location
- To find your polling place, use our polling place search. If you did not provide identification to the county commissioner of registration or if the identification information could not be verified (i.e., your driver's license number or the last four digits of your social security number), YOU MUST SHOW IDENTIFICATION AT THE POLLING PLACE WHEN YOU GO TO VOTE.
Identification may include, but not limited to, any Current and Valid Photo ID:
- NJ driver's license, Military or other Government ID, Student or Job ID, Store Membership Card, United States Passport,
- Or Bank statement, Car registration, Government check or document, Non-photo NJ driver's license, Rent receipt, Sample Ballot, Utility bill, or any other official document
If you show identification, you will vote in the voting machine.
Vote by Mail Ballot
- A voter may vote by mail by completing the Application for Vote by Mail Ballot (listed below) and returning the application to their County Clerk. To receive your ballot by mail, the application must be received by the County Clerk 7 days prior to the election. A voter may also apply in person to the County Clerk until 3:00 p.m., the day before the election.
If you do not show identification, you will vote by provisional ballot and have until the close of business on the second day after the election to provide identification to the applicable county election office. You will be given a hand-out at the polling place that will tell you which county election office to contact.
