Voting in New Jersey 2020

New Jersey ElectionsThere have been a number of changes in the voting procedure in New Jersey this year. All registered voters in New Jersey will be receiving mail-in ballots for the coming election, regardless of whether they typically vote by mail. There are also multiple ways to return your mail ballot, either through the postal service, in person at the board of elections, or by utilizing one of 13 Vote By Mail drop boxes around the county.  After you have dropped off your ballot you can track it to verify that your vote has been counted.

In light of the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, the following changes will be in effect for the 2020 General Election:

  • To limit unnecessary exposure, the election will be conducted mostly by Vote by Mail (VBM) Ballot.
  • There will be limited in-person polling places where voters can cast their vote by paper Provisional Ballots.
  • Per the new law, you cannot vote via machine at the polls (there will be an ADA accessible ballot marking devices available for voters that are unable to vote via paper ballot).

There are 4 ways for a ballot to be submitted correctly this election:

Vote by mail ballots can be…

  1. Returned to one of Camden County's 13 drop boxes 
  2. Placed in a regular Post Office mail receptacle or taken to the Post Office directly
  3. Signed-in at the Board of Elections Office at 100 University Court in Blackwood (must be accompanied by ID)
  4. Brought to your polling place on Election Day and signed in with the Boardworkers

 

If you are delivering a ballot for a friend or relative,  you must complete the “bearer” section on the outside envelope in the presence of the voter.  If you are delivering a ballot for a friend or relative in-person to the Board of Elections or the polling location, you must also complete the bearer section and you must have a valid NJ issued ID with your photo.  You may not deliver any more than 3 ballots for friends or relatives. Should you have any additional questions, please contact the Board of Elections at 856-401-8683
