If you want to vote by mail in the November 8 election, the deadline for applying for a mail-in ballot is tomorrow. Tuesday, November 1. You can learn how to do that here.
If you prefer to vote in person, but can’t get to the polls on November 8, you should know that New Jersey approved early in-person voting last year.
Early voting opened on Saturday, October 29, and runs through Sunday, November 6. There are eight early voting locations around Essex County, including the Verona Community Center at 880 Bloomfield Avenue, and you can go to whichever one is most convenient for you. Other locations are:

You cannot vote outside the county in which you live.
Hours at all early voting locations are Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. No appointment is necessary.
If you have already completed your mail-in ballot, you can drop it off in the secure drop box outside the Verona Community Center near the big doors for the fire house. You cannot drop it off inside at the polling location.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 8. Polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Your polling location is on the sample ballot mailed to your home, or you can look it up here.
