MORRIS COUNTY — New Jersey Elections Provide Three Ways to Vote The League of Women Voters of the Morristown Area (League) wants voters to know the 2023 General Election is here.

This year, New Jersey will elect all Senators and Assembly persons, select County Commissioners, and some municipal and Boards of Education representatives.

There are three ways to vote in New Jersey: Early In-Person; Vote-By-Mail; and In-Person on Election Day.

1) Early In-Person – Weekends were made for voting! There’s no need to wait to cast your vote since early in-person voting starts on Saturday, October 28, and goes through Sunday, November 5. In Morris County you can vote at any of eight polling locations from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays, and from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sundays. To find an early polling location near you, click here, the League of Women Voters one-stop shop for election information.

On Thursday, October 26, the Morristown Area League is joining thousands of nonpartisan organizations nationwide to celebrate Vote Early Day, a civic holiday created to empower Americans to share their voices by casting their ballot before Election Day. The League advocated for the passage of In-Person Early Voting in New Jersey. By providing an opportunity to vote early and in person, voters overcome barriers like long lines at polling places on Election Day, last-minute problems getting to the polls, voter disinformation, and other challenges, which can lead to voters not casting their ballots. When Americans are educated about their voting options and are given the tools to cast their ballots in a way that works for them, nothing can stop them from having their voices heard.

Last year, nearly 3,000 businesses, nonprofits, campus groups, election officials, media companies, and others came together to celebrate this civic holiday. On Vote Early Day 2022, we saw over 3,000,000 votes cast, which led to a 4.6% overall increase in the total number of Americans voting in person or by mail.

2) Vote-By-Mail
There is still time to apply for a Vote-by-Mail (VBM) ballot by mailing a completed application found by clicking here. Applications for VBM ballots must be received by October 31 or delivered, in person, to your County Clerk’s office before 3:00 p.m. on Monday, November 6. You can check your VBM status using the NJ-Elections Track My Ballot Tool or by contacting the County Clerk at elections@co.morris.nj.us or (973) 285-6066.

Don’t wait until the last minute to return your VBM ballot! You can do so in one of three ways: place your ballot in a secure ballot drop box by 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 7 (Election Day); by mail, postmarked by November 7; or in person at the Board of Elections office, which in Morris County is located at 10 Court Street, Morristown, by 8:00 p.m. on November 7.

3) Election Day in Person For voters who choose to vote in person on Election Day, find your polling location by clicking here.

If you are waiting in line at 8:00 p.m., you will be allowed to vote. Don’t leave! To learn more about candidates on your ballot, view the nonpartisan candidates’ forums on the LWV Morristown Area’s YouTube channel.
