Make Sure Your Vote Counts!
Due to Governor Murphy’s Executive Order, this year’s general election will be held primarily via mail-in ballot.
Only voters with a disability will be able to vote on a machine.
Everyone else has the following options:
- PLACE your ballot in one of several secure drop boxes that will be located throughout the county. Visit www.SalemCountyClerk.org or call (856) 935-7510 for details.
- RETURN your mail-in ballot via regular mail through the US Postal Service. Your ballot should arrive in late September or early October with return postage paid.
- DELIVER your mail-in ballot to your local polling location on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3rd.
How do I vote in the November 3, 2020 General Election?
Here in Salem County on or before October 4, 2020 every active voter will receive a vote-by-mail ballot. An active voter is defined as someone who has voted in at least one general, school board or primary election the last 4 years. When you receive your vote-by-mail ballot we recommend you place it in a drop box, mail it back using the included envelope, or bring it to your polling place on election day.
What if I don’t receive a ballot, or I moved recently?
Contact the Salem County Clerk at 856-935-7510 to ensure that they have your correct address information on file. The Salem County Clerk’s staff are here for you to ensure that you receive your ballot and have your vote counted.
I want to vote in person, can I still do that?
You will NOT be turned away at your local polling place, but your vote will be completed provisionally via a paper ballot. It will take several weeks for your vote to be counted, which is why we encourage you to place your vote-by-mail ballot in a drop box, or mail it to the Salem County Board of Elections using the provided envelope.
I don’t feel comfortable using the mail to return my ballot, what are my options?
You can drop your ballot off in one of our secure drop box locations which are listed below or you can bring your ballot to the Salem County Board of Elections at the 5th Street complex in Salem during normal business hours.
The drop box locations have 24 hour surveillance to ensure the safety of your vote. 10 days prior to the election there will be extra staff on hand at the Salem County Board of Elections office to make sure your ballot is received safely.
At the Board of Elections, located in Salem at the 5th Street complex, there will be a table setup outside the office each day so that you can hand your ballot to a Republican or Democrat member of the Board of Elections staff. You will need to follow social distancing guidelines which includes wearing a mask.
There will be additional drop box locations added where you can hand deliver your ballot. Check back for additional updates.
