TIP: How to Vote

Election day is Tuesday, November 6. New Jersey allows any voter to request a ballot by mail. New Jersey offers early voting, but most vote in person on Election Day.
Make sure you are registered: Voters registered in New Jersey can look up where to vote on New Jersey’s site or at GetToThePolls.com.
Vote early: New Jersey voters can also vote before Election Day by visiting their county clerk’s office to request a mail-in ballot in person, then filling it out and returning it to the board of elections. Contact your county clerk’s office for more information on when and how to vote early.

Voting on Election Day: What to bring

  • If you’ve voted in New Jersey before, you don’t need to provide ID to vote.
  • If you’re voting for the first-time in your county, registered to vote by mail, and didn’t provide an ID number or copy of ID when you registered, you must show ID to vote. Acceptable forms include: NJ photo or non-photo driver’s license; military or other government ID; student ID; employee ID; store membership card; US passport; or bank statement, car registration, government check or document, rent receipt, sample ballot, utility bill, or any other official document.
  • Voters without ID: If you are unable to provide ID, you will be able to vote a provisional ballot.
