Every New Jersey voter can, and should, create a state voter account. Why?
- Confirm if you are an active voter.
- Track the receipt and acceptance of your ballot.
- Note: Due to high volume of ballots, it will take 1 to 2 weeks for your ballot to show as received and ballots will not be marked as accepted until after Nov. 20th.
- See your voting history.
- Have quick access to your voter information, including polling place.
- Get contact information for Clerks and Commissioners.
So how do you create an account? Here are the short steps:
- Go to the NJ state division of elections website.
- Fill out the requested information. If you registered to vote without providing a Driver’s License or SSN, you will have to select voter ID. For Morris County, voter registration numbers are nine numbers long.
- Look for your Voter ID on your paper ballot.
- Note: If you registered some years ago, the number on your voter registration card is probably not valid any longer.
- The MDC can provide you with your Voter ID if you complete this request form
- Or call the County Clerk’s office (973) 285-6120 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your new number.
- Put in the Voter ID number and complete the rest of the required information.
- You will then receive an email from the state. Click on the link in the email and check to see that your registration has been completed.
- You can then retrieve your voter history information and see if your vote has been counted.
