About 15% of all registered voters in New Jersey have pro-actively signed up for “Track My Ballot” accounts with the Division of Elections so they can be certain their own mail-in ballots have been received by their county election board.
Election officials began mailing out over 900,000 vote-by-mail ballots for the June 6 primary elections on Saturday. Roughly 22% of voters affiliated with one of the major political parties automatically receive mail-in ballots in New Jersey.
As of last week, 963,994 New Jersey voters have the ability to check online to confirm that their ballots have been received and then counted.
Many of the accounts were generated in 2020 when the primary and general elections were run almost entirely through mail-in ballots in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021, New Jerseyans cast 28.6% of their primary ballots and 22.5% of general elections ballots by mail. Last year, 36% of primary votes and 22% of general election votes were cast using vote-by-mail ballots.
