No Excuses--Absentee Ballots Available

by Press Release-Office of the Governor | Oct 23, 2005
No Excuses--Absentee Ballots Available As you know, the election season is upon us. For the first time, absentee ballots are available to all New Jersey voters. This is an important measure that helps us to ensure that everyone who is eligible to vote is able to exercise his or her right.

Absentee ballots allow any registered voter to cast a vote from anywhere through the mail. If you are out of town, unable to make it to the polls, or just prefer to vote by mail, you can still make your voice heard. Applications for absentee ballots must be mailed by November 1, or a voter may apply in person at the County Clerk’s Office up until 3pm on November 7.

Here in New Jersey, every vote counts. You can print the absentee ballot application and learn more about your rights by visiting the Department of Law and Public Safety’s Division of Elections website at

In addition to deciding our next Governor, voters will also decide two matters of great importance to New Jersey and its future. This year’s election will decide whether or not to establish the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, and change the order of succession should another Governor leave office before his or her term expires. In addition, voters will decide whether or not to expand uses of dedicated tax revenue to fund air pollution control and administrative costs of the underground storage tank program.

Further explanation of these important issues is available on the Department of Law and Public Safety’s Division of Elections website at
