If you are a qualified and registered voter in Atlantic County, you may apply to Vote By Mail by sending the County Clerk an official “Vote By Mail Ballot Application”. This application must be received by the County Clerk no later than 7 days prior to the date of the election in which you wish to vote. Your request should be on an official Vote By Mail Application. If you fail to meet the 7 day deadline, you may come to the County Clerk’s Office in person during the 7 day period prior to the election (until 3:00 PM the day before the election) to complete an application and receive a ballot.

Attention: Military & Overseas Voters

On August 12, 2008, Governor Jon Corzine signed legislation expanding the methods of transmitting ballots used by Military and Overseas Voters.

New Jersey law formerly allowed for votes to be transmitted only by fax.

The law has been revised to include any other form of electronic communication, including email.

Information and forms regarding overseas voter registration and absentee ballots are available from the Federal Voting Assistance Program at

The Atlantic County registered voters may print a Military or Overseas absentee ballot application, fill it out and it mail to The Atlantic County Clerk’s Office, 5901 Main Street, Mays Landing NJ 08330.

Applications as well as any questions may also be emailed to: American citizens who are not registered to vote may also apply at those addresses.

When you apply for an absentee ballot you may indicate whether you wish to have the ballot mailed to you, emailed to you, or faxed to you. You will then receive instructions on how to complete and return your voted ballot.
