What You Need to Know to Vote in the November 3rd, 2020 General Election

How do I register to vote?  You must be registered by October 13th, 2020 in order to vote. 

Visit www.njelections.org for a Voter Registration Form or call the Ewing Township Clerk’s Office at (609)538-7609 for an emailed copy.

Voter Drop BoxPlease note that if your signature has changed since your original voter registration, it is recommended that you re-register to vote so your signature is current and can be matched to the one on your registration when voting.  If you are disabled and can no longer sign your signature when voting, please reach out to the Mercer County Superintendent of Elections Office at (609)989-6750 for further information.

HOW CAN I VOTE?

All active registered voters in New Jersey will automatically receive their pre-paid postage ballots in the mail.  Then all you must do is VOTE, SIGN, SEAL and RETURN.  How you return it is up to you: by mail, using the secure ballot drop box, or at your designated polling place. 

By Mail

Your ballot must be postmarked by November 3, 2020 on or before 8:00 p.m. and be received by your County’s Board of Elections on or before November 10, 2020.

Secure Ballot Drop Box 

Place your ballot in one of our County’s secure ballot drop boxes by 8:00 p.m. on November 3, 2020.  The County Board of Elections will be picking up these ballots.  In Ewing Township there is a Ballot box in front of the Municipal Building at 2 Jake Garzio Drive and at the Mercer County Board of Elections at 1440 Parkside Ave. in front of the building entrance along the curb.  (Full list of Mercer County Secure Ballot Boxes)

ONLY YOU CAN BRING YOUR BALLOT TO YOUR POLLING LOCATION ON ELECTION DAY!

WHAT IF I HAVEN’T RECEIVED MY BALLOT?

Every active registered voter in New Jersey should receive a ballot in the mail.  If it hasn’t arrived by October 12, 2020, track your vote-by-mail ballot status online at https://nj.gov/state/elections/vote-track-my-ballot.shtml or contact your Mercer County Clerk at This email address is being protected from spambots.

CAN I VOTE IN PERSON?

You may choose to vote in person by provisional ballot at your polling place from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, November 3rd, 2020.  Accommodations will be made for individuals with disabilities to use an accessible voting machine.  Due to the pandemic, the number of polling places have been reduced during this election cycle.  The updated list is provided here. 

Hints

If you come in person, be sure to remember your District Number as recorded on your ballot.  This will help ensure that social distancing requirements are met and a quicker voting process. 

It is a good idea to bring identification and proof of address with you when you go to vote, especially if you are voting for the first time. If you registered by mail, you may need to bring a photo ID, utility bill, paycheck, or other document showing your name and address.

Track Your Ballot

Voters can now track their vote by mail ballot through the Track My Ballot Portal.  First time users have to create an account and will need either a Driver’s License Number, Last 4 digits of SSN, or Voter ID Number to validate voter registration status. (If you don’t know your Voter ID number, you can obtain it by going to "Am I Registered?" or  contact your Superintendent of Elections or Commissioner of Registration).  Your Voter ID number will also be on the ballot that you receive in the mail, so you can follow its progress to ensure that it was received.
