The County is currently waiting for delivery of the 12 new drop boxes.  Once delivered, they will be installed.  The drop boxes in Demarest, Fort Lee, Hackensack, Ramsey, Ridgewood and Rutherford were in place for the Primary. An alternative to mailing voted mail-in ballots at local post offices, the drop boxes were paid for by the State of New Jersey. 

Ballots will be picked up regularly, and brought to the Board of Elections offices for immediate processing.   The last pick-up will be at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3rd. Voters may also chose to mail their ballots at the post office or bring their own ballot to their polling place on election day.

Access to ballot drop boxes is 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Ballots must be in a drop box by 8:00 p.m. on election night, Tuesday, November 3, when the boxes will be locked.  Ballots left after 8:00 p.m. on election night will be considered late and not counted.
