In New Jersey, any voter can now vote by mail. You do not need a reason to vote by mail. Don't feel like going to the polls? Simply vote by mail. Now there is no excuse not to vote!
As a Newark resident you may apply for a mail-in ballot if you are a qualified and registered voter by written application to the County Clerk's Office.

You may also apply in person to the Clerk's office, or by authorized messenger, on any day up to 3:00 p.m. the day before an election.
The County Clerk cannot accept faxed or e-mailed copies of the Vote by Mail Application (unless you are an overseas voter, see below), since an original signature is required.
