Per Morris County Clerk: Important Message Regarding the Statewide Vote by Mail Law
A new law was signed by Governor Phil Murphy in August 2018 which drastically changed the Vote by Mail rules in New Jersey. These changes were effective immediately and impacted all future elections.
BEFORE: One of the changes involves how a voter can apply for a Mail-In Ballot. (VBM) Before the change in the law, a voter had three options on the application: 1) The voter could opt to receive a Mail-In Ballot for one election, 2) all elections in one calendar year, and 3) all future general elections.
NOW: Now, a voter has only two options for voting by mail. A voter can request a Mail-In Ballot for: 1) one election or 2)for all elections every year until the voter opts out in writing. Voters can download the updated Vote by Mail application here.
It is important to remember that, according to State law, any voter who receives a Mail-In Ballot will not be permitted to vote on a voting machine on Election Day. Voters will either have to utilize the Mail-In Ballot they receive or vote on a paper provisional ballot at the polls on Election Day.
If you have any questions about the Vote by Mail process or about the new law, you are encouraged to contact the Morris County Clerk’s Office – Elections Division at MorrisCountyClerkElections@co.morris.nj.us or 973-285-6066.
