Just the Facts: Creating a Voter Account.

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 the election.
  • 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:

  1. Go to the NJ state division of elections website.
  2. 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.
    1. Look for your Voter ID on your paper ballot.
    2. Note: If you registered some years ago, the number on your voter registration card is probably not valid any longer.
    3. The MDC can provide you with your Voter ID if you complete this request form 
    4. Or call the County Clerk’s office (973) 285-6120 or email elections@co.morris.nj.us to get your new number.
  3. Put in the Voter ID number and complete the rest of the required information.
  4. 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.
  5. You can then retrieve your voter history information and see if your vote has been counted.

If your ballot is not showing as received/accepted in your Voter Account you can call the Morris County Board of Elections: 973-285-6715 or email elections@co.morris.nj.us.
