Information on Registering to Vote:
Information on Vote by Mail Ballots:
You may apply for a Mail-In Ballot if you are a registered voter by completing an application and submitting it to the Morris County Clerk’s Office office either by mail or in person. A Mail-In Ballot Application by mail must be received by the Clerk’s Office no later than 7 days prior to the election for which it is being requested. All Mail-In Ballot Applications received by mail will be processed in a timely manner and Mail-In Ballots will be mailed directly to the voter. Registered voters may apply in person or via authorized messenger for a Mail-In Ballot up until 3:00 P.M. of the day before the election. Those voters applying in person will be able to receive their ballot by hand upon submitting the application.
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.
