In New Jersey, any voter can vote by Mail-in Ballot (formerly known as Absentee Ballots) for all local, state and national elections. You do not need a reason to Vote by Mail.  

Vote by Mail Ballot Applications are available at the Bergenfield Borough Clerk's office or at the County Clerk’s Office.  A Vote by Mail Ballot application must be received in the County Clerk’s office (not postmarked) seven (7) days prior to election day by the close of business, but can be submitted at anytime prior to the deadline for an election in the calendar year.  You can also print out an application form below and after entering the required data, mail or hand deliver it to the Bergen County Clerk’s Office.  The County Clerk cannot accept faxed copies of a Vote by Mail Ballot Application since an original signature is required.  The Mail-in Ballot will be sent to the address you request. 

You may also apply in person to the County Clerk up until 3:00 p.m. the day prior to the election. In the event of sickness or confinement, an authorized messenger may pick up a ballot for the voter, provided they are designated in writing (the bottom box of the application). An authorized messenger shall be a family member or a registered voter of Bergen County and shall place his/her signature on the application in the space provided in the presence of the County Clerk or his/her designee. If an emergent circumstance should arise after the 3:00 p.m. deadline, you may apply to a Judge for an order for the County Clerk to issue a ballot.
