In New Jersey, any eligible registered voter can Vote by Mail - you don't need a reason to request a Vote by Mail ballot, but you DO need to apply. Voters are able to return ballots by mail, using a ballot drop box, or in-person at their County Board of Elections.
A voter may vote by mail by completing the Application for Vote by Mail Ballot and returning the application to their County Clerk. To receive your ballot by mail, the application must be received by your 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.
