CAMDEN, NJ — The deadline to register to vote — in-person, online or by mail postmarked for Oct. 13 — in the 2020 General Election is Tuesday. 

“Make sure you are ready to cast your ballot in November by carefully following the directions included on the voter registration form, and make sure your application is postmarked no later than Oct. 13, if you are registering by mail,” said County Clerk Joseph Ripa. “Registering is easier than ever thanks to the new online voter registration system. If you’re not sure whether you are registered, head to the New Jersey Division of Elections webpage to confirm your status.”

Below is the required criteria to register:

"In light of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Governor Phil Murphy has signed legislation making significant changes to how the 2020 General Election will be conducted. Voters in Camden County should take appropriate steps to prepare for, and familiarize themselves with, these changes as soon as possible," county officials said in a statement.

Below are how the general election will look different this year:

  • To limit unnecessary exposure, the election will be conducted mostly by Vote by Mail (VBM) Ballot.
  • There will be limited in-person polling places where voters can cast their vote by paper Provisional Ballots.
  • Per the new law, you cannot vote via machine at the polls (there will be an ADA accessible ballot marking devices available for voters that are unable to vote via paper ballot).

If you live in Camden County and have not received your ballot by Oct. 12, you can visit www.camdencounty.com/vbm2 to request a replacement ballot. 

The following drop boxes have been placed throughout the county for anyone taking the VBM option (the boxes are open 24 hours a day):
