Due to Hurricane Sandy, the state of New Jersey is allowing several alternative voting methods for displaced voters and first responders.

Vote at the nearest polling place

You can vote at the polling place nearest where you are on Election Day, instead of your home polling place. To find an accessible polling place, go to www.google.com/elections/ed/us/vote. If you can do this, we strongly recommend voting in person.

Vote by email or fax

You can cast your ballot via email or fax. The deadline to request ballots via email or fax is Tuesday, November 6 at 5 PM.

UPDATE: as of 2pm on November 6, the Election Protection staff are urging voters in Essex, Hudson, and Bergen counties in NJ to vote at their polling places because of issues with fax/email voting.

  1. Fill out a New Jersey ballot request form.
    • You still need to sign the application. (If you do not have a scanner, we recommend getting help from FedEx Office, the UPS Store, or a local printing shop or library).
    • If you are voting by email, you must include your email address on the form.
    • If you are voting by fax, you must write your fax number (you can use the email address space) on the form.
  2. Send it to your county clerk using the fax or email information listed below.
  3. Your clerk will provide further instructions on where and how to return your ballot—follow them carefully. You need to email or fax your return ballot by 8pm on Friday, November 9.
