New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way and the New Jersey Division of Elections are reminding voters of three convenient ways to vote in the 2022 general election, with information on each available at Vote.NJ.Gov:

Those three ways are at a polling place on Election Day, Nov. 8; at in-person early voting; or with a vote by mail ballot, according to a press release.

“It is important for voters to get their information from trusted sources, such as the Vote.NJ.Gov website, and understand the three convenient ways available to cast their ballot,” Way said. “We have made it easy on the website to find your polling location or a county early voting site, to find secure ballot drop boxes, and more.”

• At a local polling place on Election Day, Nov. 8 – Registered voters can cast their ballot in person at their polling place, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 8. Accommodations will be made for voters who have a disability. Go to Vote.NJ.Gov for polling places, listed on the Polling Locations page.

• In-person early voting – This option enables all registered voters to cast their ballot in person, using a voting machine, during a nine-day period prior to Election Day. Voters can choose to vote, in person, when it is most convenient for their schedule.

No matter where a voter lives in their county, they can cast their specific ballot at any of their county’s designated in-person early voting locations. County locations can be found at Vote.NJ.Gov.

In-person early voting locations will be open from Oct. 29 through Nov. 6. Hours will be Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. No appointment is necessary. Accommodations will be made for voters who have a disability.

• Vote by mail ballot – Registered voters can apply for a vote by mail ballot by following the instructions found at Vote.NJ.Gov or by contacting their county clerk.

Return options for a vote by mail ballot include:

Mail: The vote by mail ballot must be postmarked on or before 8 p.m. Nov. 8 and received by the county Board of Elections on or before Nov. 14;

Secure Ballot Drop Box: Place the vote by mail ballot in a county secure ballot drop box by 8 p.m. Nov. 8. Drop box locations can be found at Vote.NJ.Gov;

Board of Elections Office: Deliver the ballot in person to the county Board of Elections office by 8 p.m. Nov. 8.County election officials contact information can be found at Vote.NJ.Gov.

Vote by mail ballots cannot be returned to polling places or to early voting locations.
