VOTE BY MAIL

 

Notice: Due to recent changes in the law, no persons are permitted to serve as either a messenger or “bearer” of more than three (3) ballots from qualified voters in an election.

A voter may vote by mail for any or all elections by completing an Application for Vote by Mail Ballot, and mailing the application to the County Clerk up to 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. A voter can choose to vote by mail for one election or all, depending on his or her preference.  In New Jersey, any voter can vote by mail for any reason or no reason at all using the Vote By Mail ballot.  The Vote by Mail legislation allows voters to avoid long lines at polls, and gives them a chance to vote in the privacy of their own home at their convenience. The Clerk cannot accept faxed or emailed copies of an Application for a Vote by Mail Ballot, unless you are a Military or Overseas Voter, since an original signature is required.

MILITARY & CIVILIAN OVERSEAS VOTE BY MAIL

These voters can request and return a ballot by electronic transmission (fax or as an email attachment). To begin, here are the definitions of the voters entitled to use these options:

Military Voters

 A military voter is a voter who is absent from his or her New Jersey residence on election day; and is entitled to vote whether he or she is living elsewhere in New Jersey (i.e. a military installation), outside of New Jersey or outside the United States.

A "military voter" includes New Jersey citizens who are members of the Uniformed Services, Merchant Marine, Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

A spouse or dependent of a member of the military or other uniformed services is also considered to be a "military voter".

Overseas Voters

 An "overseas voter" is a voter who is living outside of the United States and who was residing in New Jersey immediately prior to departure.

Note: The overseas voter need not have been registered to vote in New Jersey prior to going outside of the United States, but must have been domiciled in New Jersey and have possessed the qualifications to register and vote in New Jersey

 

All military voters and overseas voters must be registered to vote in order to obtain a ballot for the November election.

You can use a state form:
http://elections.nj.gov/voting-information.html#vrf

Or a federal postcard application ("FPCA"):
http://www.fvap.gov/

ONLY the federal postcard application can be used for both voter registration and ballot request. If you use the New Jersey forms, you must separately submit a New Jersey voter registration form and a New Jersey mail-in ballot application.

Delivery Requirements for Voted Military & OverseasBallot:

A completed ballot must be sent back to the appropriate county board of election, by 8:00 p.m. election night, which is the time for the close of the polls.

This 8:00 p.m. deadline applies to all ballots, regardless of the method of delivery. Whether you air-mail, fax or email your voted ballot, it must be received by 8:00 p.m. on election night.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR BALLOTS RETURNED BY FAX OR EMAIL:
The voter who faxes or emails his or her voted ballot, must also air mail the original ballot materials to the county board of election.

Federal Write-In Absentee Ballots (FWAB):

Federal law also provides for the use of a federal write-in ballot for federal elections for use by an overseas voter who makes a timely application for, but who does not receive, his or her state mail-in ballot.

To get a federal mail-in ballot, go to http://www.fvap.gov/. You can email or fax your FWAB to your county board of election. If you fax or email the ballot, you must also sign and send the FWAB cover sheet. This cover sheet must be sent for faxed and emailed ballots because it constitutes a waiver of secrecy for such ballot because the ballot is not being sent in an enclosed envelope, as air-mailed ballots. Be assured however, that election officials are legally obligated to never disclose any one's vote.

The federal write-in ballot will NOT BE COUNTED if:

 The ballot is submitted from any location within the United States; or

§The application of the overseas voter is received by the appropriate state election official less than 30 days before the election; or

§  The state ballot is received by the appropriate state election official by the close of the polls on election night.

Note: If the voter submits a federal write-in ballot for the federal general election and later receives the state ballot, he or she may also send in the state ballot (presumably if the voter thinks that the state ballot can be received by the close of the polls) and should indicate that he or she had previously sent in the federal write-in ballot.
