Earlier this year, a law was passed permitting in-person early voting in New Jersey.

Here are the answers to five common questions about in-person early voting:

1. What Is In-Person Early Voting?

2. Where Can I Access In-Person Early Voting?

  • No matter where you live in the county, you can vote your specific ballot at any of your county’s designated in-person early voting
