IF You Don't Have a Ballot and

Have to Vote in Person

 

Governor Murphy has issued an Executive Order requiring the July 7th Primary to be an all Vote by Mail election (with Few Exceptions)  We want to make this easy for you!

 
HOW TO VOTE BY MAIL FOR THE JULY 7TH PRIMARY
Turnaround and Timing is of the Essence!
  • If you are registered to vote with a political party, you will be receiving a Vote by Mail ballot by mid-June. Return your ballot as soon as possible in case there are issues you need to correct.

  • You can return your ballot via the US Postal Service as the postage is pre-paid.  You can also deliver your ballot in one of five secure drop boxes located throughout the county (Morristown, Montville, Mt. Olive, Madison and Rockaway Township).  A third option is to hand deliver to the Board of Elections in Morristown. The address is 10 Court St, Second Floor Morristown, NJ 07960 973-285-6715

FILLING OUT THE BALLOT:
  • When you get your ballot, open it right away, read all the instructions and DO NOT throw anything away.

  • Fill out your ballot and use ONLY a pencil or ink pen (black or blue).  We encourage you to vote for every Republican race on the ballot.

  • You CANNOT vote for more candidates than is permitted or your vote will not count. So read the “Office Title” column carefully– it will tell you if you are voting for one (example, Freeholder) or two (example, Borough Council).

  • Fold your completed ballot and put inside the inner envelope, and seal it.

  • Fill out the “Certificate of Mail-in Voter” that is attached to the inner envelope. DO NOT DETACH. This self-certification is required to confirm that you filled out the ballot in secret and is required for your ballot to be accepted and to count. You are allowed an Assistor and if you are doing that, fill that section out.

  • Be sure you SIGN your NAME on the Certificate 

  • Place the completed inner envelope inside the pre-paid postage outer envelope and seal it

  • Submit your completed ballot via USPS, drop box, or in person

  • If someone other than the voter is delivering the ballot to the Board of Elections make sure that they fill out and sign the Bearer Section on the left-back side of the return envelope.
    Each Bearer may return only a max of three ballots

 
WHAT IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE BALLOT?
  • If you lose your VBM Ballot, it is destroyed or you don’t think you received it:

    • Immediately request a duplicate from the County Clerk’s Office: 973-285-6715

  • VBM ballots will be rejected if you fail to sign the ballot, and if you attempt to tape the ballot of if it is detached or damaged.

 
HOW TO MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE A BALLOT:
