All voters are eligible to vote absentee in New Jersey. There are no special eligibility requirements for voting absentee.[1]


To vote absentee, an absentee ballot application must be received by the county election office at least seven days prior to the election if returned by mail. It can also be submitted in person to the county election office until 3 PM on the day before the election. A returned absentee ballot must then be received by the elections office by the time the polls close on election day.[2]
