Vote by Mail or use a Drop Box.

Your Future Is At Stake!

Election 2020 in New Jersey will be primarily Vote by Mail balloting. Every active voter will receive an official paper ballot in the mail soon – or already has received one.

Vote by Mail is safe, secure and secret, and it protects New Jerseyans from COVID-19.

But if you are concerned that the much-publicized slowdowns at the United States Postal Service may delay your vote, the New Jersey State AFL-CIO offers this advice:

1. Fill out your ballot completely and accurately as soon as you get it and put it right back in the mail. Postage is prepaid.

2. Fill out your ballot completely and accurately and put it in your nearest in-county drop box. The boxes are monitored 24/7; the ballots are collected at least once a day; and the boxes are sanitized.

For a complete statewide list of ballot drop boxes, click here.

3. Fill out your ballot completely and accurately and deliver it to your polling place on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3. Check your ballot or click here to find your polling place because it probably will be different this year.

Your Future Is At Stake in this most important election of our lifetime. Make your voice heard!

Know the Facts! Know What’s at Stake in the 2020 Election!

 

When you think about voting in the General Election, you immediately think of the candidates running for office. But Public Questions also offer you a way to make a huge – and more direct – impact on our democracy.

Public Question 1: Should the state Constitution be amended to legalize a controlled form of marijuana called “cannabis,” for use only by people at least 21 years old? If approved, the sale would be regulated and taxed by the state.

Public Question 2: Should the state Constitution be amended to give a $250 property tax deduction to peacetime military veterans, and should some disabled peacetime veterans be exempt from property taxes? The surviving spouse would continue to receive the deduction or exemption after the veteran’s death. Currently, only wartime veterans receive these benefits.

Public Question 3: Should the state Constitution be amended to allow a later date for legislative redistricting if the federal census data is delayed? Under this plan, the every-10-years redistricting would apply to elections held in years ending in 3 instead of 1, e.g. 2023 not 2021.

Know the Facts Before You Vote. Vote on Public Questions to make a direct impact on our democracy!
