Election Information
If you mail in or drop off your ballot at a designated box ballot box before Election Day, your ballot will be counted in the Election Day totals. If you vote on Election Day, your vote will be tallied at a later time in the final count.
You are encouraged to contact your local Municipal Clerk’s office if you have any questions about voting. While the general offices are closed on Election Day, the Borough Clerk is available on Election Day from 6:00 am until 8:00 pm by calling (609)494-3064.
Are you registered to vote? You can find out by clicking check the link below and filling out the required information.
In-person voting will be by provisional ballot only. Machines are available only to those individuals unable to vote by paper ballot due to a disability. The Executive Order requires anyone using the machine for this purpose to complete an affidavit certifying that they are unable to vote by paper. The poll worker assisting is required to contact the Board of Elections to confirm eligibility.
*** If you have not received your mail in ballot, please contact the Ocean County Clerk’s office at (609)597-1500. ***
