As of yesterday (Saturday, October 24), New Jersey election officials are officially allowed to start counting ballots! While the exact start times will vary from county to county -- and ours has said it will begin only some time after the 24th and before Election Day -- there's no time like the present to get your ballot in.
If you haven't voted already (and we know it's an ever-dwindling group), here is the basic information you'll need to get you successfully through the early voting process.
