Displaced voters will be treated as if they were overseas voters. As such, they may submit mail-in ballot applications to their local Board of Elections by 5 PM on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, via email or fax. The County Clerk will then determine if the applicant is a qualified voter and, if qualified, will send a ballot and waiver of secrecy form via email or fax. These forms must be transmitted by email or fax back to the County by 8 PM on November 6, 2012.
Displaced voters may also vote by provisional ballot at any New Jersey polling site. Polling places are being relocated and voting hours extended on a county-by-county basis. Voters can text 877877 to find out the location of their polling place.
New Jersey voters can direct any questions to 1-877-NJVOTER.
