Voting by Mail (VBM) – Explained
The ability to vote by mail benefits all NJ residents
One of the greatest changes to come out of our state government (which is far and few between) – was the modification of the “Absentee Ballots,” which used to have stringent requirements to use (out of country, etc.)
Now, Voting By Mail (VBM) is a fantastic way vote on your timetable, not only on election day. Fill out the form when you’re ready, and drop it in the mail. A nice and simple way to encourage more voters to participate in local elections. The VBM trend is starting to catch on as constituents wake up and realize the benefits.
However, many residents still don’t understand the Vote-by-Mail changes that the State made. Some are still referring to them as “Absentee Ballots,” which is incorrect and further confuses the public.
