Voters can register online to check the status of their Mail-In Ballot…

Voters who want to check the status of their voted mail-in ballot can do so by setting up a personalized account with the NJ Division of Elections; follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to https://njelections.org/
  2. Click “Am I Registered?”
  3. Click “NJ Voter Information Page
  4. Click “Sign Up for Public Access
  5. Enter your information as it’s found in your Voter Registration file:
    1. Last Name
    2. First Name
    3. County of Residence
    4. Enter Voter ID (Most successful) 
      NOTE:  Your Voter Id# is listed on both the outer mailing envelope that your ballot came in, and on the inner envelope used to return your voted ballot to the Board of Elections.

      1. If you do not know your Voter ID, you may enter your Driver License # instead ONLY if you registered to vote using your DL# as ID
      2. If you do not know your Voter ID AND you didn’t register with your DL#, you may enter the last 4 digits of your SSN ONLY if you registered to vote using your last 4 SSN as ID
  6. Click Sign Up for Access

Once you’ve successfully created an account, you’ll be prompted to log in. To check your mail-in ballot status, scroll down to the bottom of your screen and click “Mail-In Ballot History”; the current election will be listed first. Look at the column labeled “Ballot Received Date” to see if/when your ballot was received by the County Board of Elections.

Access to your online account will be available to you year-round for all upcoming elections. If you’ve chosen to vote-by-mail in all future elections, it would be a great idea to set up an account for continued access to your voting records.

NOTE:  If you were unsuccessful in creating an account online, you’ll need to contact the Sussex County Board of Elections to check your Voter ID.
