Public Law 2009, Chapter 79, the new Vote By Mail Law was signed into effect on July 1, 2009 by Governor Corzine.
If you are a qualified and registered voter of the State who wants to vote by mail in any or all elections (school, municipal, primary, presidential primary, general, fire district or special election), you may submit a Vote By Mail application to the Warren County Clerkís office and a ballot will be mailed to you..
Voters who want to vote only by mail in all future general elections in which they are eligible to vote, and who state that on their application shall, after their initial request and without further action on their part, be provided a mail-in ballot by the county clerk until the voter requests that the voter no longer be sent such a ballot. A voterís failure to vote in the fourth general election following the general election at which the voter last voted may result in the suspension of that voterís ability to receive a mail-in ballot for all future general elections unless a new application is completed and filed with the county clerk.
Voters also have the option of indicating on their mail-in ballot applications that they would prefer to receive mail-in ballots for each election that takes place during the remainder of the calendar year. Voters who exercise this option will be furnished with mail-in ballots for each election that takes place during the remainder of the calendar year, without further action on their part.
If any person has assisted you to complete the mail-in ballot application, the name, address and signature of the assistor must be provided on the application, and you must sign and date the application for it to be valid and processed. No person shall serve as an authorized messenger for more than 3 qualified voters in an election. No person who is a candidate in the election for which the voter requests a mail-in ballot may provide any assistance in the completion of the ballot or may serve as an authorized messenger or bearer.
No mail-in ballot will be provided to any applicant who submits a request therefore by mail unless the request is received at least seven days before the election and contains the requested information. A voter may, however, request an application in person from the county clerk up to 3 p.m. of the day before the election.
Application forms may be obtained by applying to the Warren County Clerk either in writing or by telephone, or the application form provided below may be completed and forwarded to the Warren County Clerk.
