Early Voting

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
If you have previously been an ACTIVE vote by mail voter and you wish to vote early at anyone of the early voting centers you will need to OPT-OUT 55 or more days prior to any election in order to cast a ballot in person on a machine.

NOTE: In 2020 an executive order was issued for a full vote by mail election, both for Primary and General elections. That DID NOT mean that you will be subject to voting by mail in the future. You were NOT automatically placed on a vote by mail list unless you had previously requested to be by completing, signing, and mailing a Vote by Mail Application to our office.

What is in-person early voting?
Registered voters are able to cast their vote, using a voting machine, during a nine day period prior to Election Day. You can now choose to vote, in person, when it’s most convenient for your schedule.

How can I check my registration status for in-person early voting?
You can use the NJ Division of Elections Voter Search tool or contact the office of the Superintendent of Elections.

NOTE: If you are using the NJ Division of Election search tool

The online look up tool will not work if the name entered does not EXACTLY match the county records.

  • Does your last name have a hyphen or space? McDonald may be entered by the county as Mc Donald.
  • Was there a hyphen added or last name changed due to marriage?
  • The online look up may not work if a middle initial is used to search and the county doesn’t have a middle name on the registration
  • Nicknames won’t match: Kate won’t match Katherine, Jim won’t match James, etc.
