November General Election
Under Gov. Murphy's Executive Order #177
A mail-in ballot with prepaid postage will be automatically sent to all active Registered Voters by Oct. 5th.
There will be no sample ballot. What you receive is what you will use to vote.
VOTING IN PERSON
There will be at least one polling place open in all municipalities for in-person voting. However, you can vote only using a paper provisional ballot unless you have a disability, then you will have access to an ADA-conforming voting machine.
Schools will be closed to in-person student instruction on Election day to allow schools to be used for polling places.
Please see Angela's instructional video on how to vote with the mail-in ballot. While a primary mail-in ballot was shown in the instructional video, the process is the same for the November general election.

You can return your completed ballot by:
1. Depositing it in a secure ballot drop box;
2. Mailing it through the US Postal Service. All ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 3rd and received by 8 PM on Nov. 10th for the ballot to be counted;
3. Handing it to a poll worker at the polling place on Election Day;
4. Dropping it off at the Board of Elections' office at 300 Halls Mill Rd, Freehold, NJ on or before Election Day
