New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way Explains Voting By Mail On The Big Show

Wednesday, September 30th

New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way joined the big show to explain the state's new comprehensive education campaign, NEW JERSEY VOTES, aiming to educate voters on the upcoming November 3rd General Election.

The NEW JERSEY VOTES education campaign will help answer questions about registering to vote, voting by mail, tracking ballots, finding secure ballot drop boxes, voting in-person and more.

The education campaign is especially designed to help voters understand the vote by mail process, which was decreed through an executive order and signed into law by Governor Phil Murphy for the safety of the state’s voters in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

By October 5th, 2020, New Jersey’s County Clerks must send a Vote By Mail Ballot to all registered active voters.

If voters need assistance or have any questions call the state voter information/protection hotline at 1-877-NJVOTER (1-877-658- 6837).

You can also go to VOTE.NJ.GOV for all the details.

Voters should read the instructions on their ballot carefully, and then vote. Here is how:
Place the voted ballot inside the provided interior envelope and SIGN the envelope on the signature line. Do not detach the certificate from the envelope.
SEAL the signed envelope inside the provided mailing envelope, and SEAL that envelope.
RETURN the ballot. Voters have several choices in how to return their ballot: by mail (return postage is prepaid for all voters), in one of their county’s secure ballot drop boxes, at their Board of Elections office, or at their local polling location by 8:00 p.m. EST on Election Day.

Voters can check on the status of their vote by mail ballot online at 

The deadline to register to vote for this general election is October 13th, 2020.
