Due to public health and safety issues created by the COVID-19 pandemic, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order 177 stating that the November 3, 2020 General Election will be conducted primarily via vote-by-mail ballots.
There will be no standard voting machines at any polling location.
Each of the two polling locations in Livingston will have one specialized voting machine designed specifically to accommodate voters who are visually impaired.
Individuals who have no visual disability and do not need to use the specialized voting machines and who physically visit a polling place will be given a paper Provisional Ballot to complete. The Provisional Ballot is similar to a paper Vote-By-Mail ballot.
A Provisional Ballot is a paper ballot filled out by an individual visiting a polling place. Once completed, placed in an envelope and sealed by the voter, the ballot is handed to the board worker, who will put the envelope into a special container.
No Provisional Ballot is counted at the polling place. All Provisional Ballots are taken to the County Commissioner of Registration’s office after the close of polls for verification and counting by the County Board of Election.
Voters can track their ballot online by setting up a public access account on the Secretary of State’s website: My Voter Record Sign Up.
To set up an account, you must provide one of the following:
The system compares that to your voter file to verify your account. If your file does not contain some of that information, you may have difficulty creating an account.
Once you have set up your My Voter Record account, you can sign in and track your ballot.
Voters can call 1-877-NJVOTER (1-877-658-6837) after the election to find out whether their Vote-by-Mail or Provisional Ballot was counted. If your ballot was not counted, you can find out why it was not counted.

The limited numbers of polling places that will be available for the November 3, 2020 General Election are specifically to accommodate individuals who are visually impaired, or the limited number of those who must for some reason vote by Provisional ballot.
The voting machines at those locations are specifically designed for use by individuals who are unable to complete the written Vote-by-Mail ballots due to sight impairment.
