Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds voters who are using a Vote-by-Mail ballot that they can monitor the status of their ballots online, by using the free “Track My Ballot” portal provided by the Division of Elections in the New Jersey Department of State.
“The Track My Ballot portal enables Vote-by-Mail users to see if their ballot has been received. It provides voters with transparency and clarity regarding the Vote-by-Mail process,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “We encourage all Vote-by-Mail users to sign up for this free service.”
When the Vote-by-Mail ballot is received by the Board of Elections, Track My Ballot will indicate “received.” On or shortly after Election Day, Track My Ballot will indicate if the ballot was accepted.
Voters can use the system at any time on a 24/7 basis.
In case of a rejected ballot, the voter is provided with an opportunity to cure their ballot. They will receive a letter from the Board of Elections with instructions on how to proceed.
Vote-by-Mail users are reminded that the counting of both Vote-by-Mail and in-person ballots will begin after the polls close on Tuesday, November 8.
