HOW DO I TRACK MY MAIL-IN-BALLOT?

IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON ON ELECTION DAY:

1- You can only drop off your mail-in ballot at the Glen Ridge Train Station or Women’s Club. 

2- You can only cast a provisional paper ballot on Election Day.  

Provisional ballots will have to be processed and verified at the Board of Elections prior to being counted and that can take 10-12 days.  

 

We cannot emphasize enough how important it is that you vote early and prior to the Election Day in order to avoid overwhelming the polls on the day of the Election. Please share this information with your family and friends, and get out the vote!
