Vote by mail
In New Jersey, any voter can vote by mail in any election. To apply for a Vote by Mail ballot, go to njelections.org, click on “Vote by Mail” and scroll down to the form for your county of residence. Print it, complete it, and sign it. The county clerk cannot accept faxed or emailed copies of the application, unless you are a military or overseas voter, because an original signature is required.

Every New Jersey State Assembly seat is up for election and the Legislature and State Board of Education continue to consider legislation and regulations that affect you, your students and your profession.
