Last year, the 2020 general election was mostly mail-in in New Jersey — the state sent mail-in ballots to all of the state’s registered Democrats and Republicans living here to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
But for this year’s 2021 general election, voters will only receive a mail-in, or vote-by-mail ballot, if they request one. Otherwise, eligible voters can vote early and in person, or on Nov, 2, which is Election Day, in person.
Here’s everything you need to know about voting by mail, with information from the New Jersey Department of State. For any additional questions, visit the state’s Division of Elections website here.
