    Chapter 62: Municipality with 500 or fewer persons may conduct elections by mail.

      Section: 19:62-5: Replacement ballot.

5. A registered voter may obtain a replacement ballot if a ballot has not been received by that person, or if it has been destroyed, spoiled or lost. A registered voter seeking a replacement ballot shall proceed to the office of the county clerk or municipal clerk to obtain such a ballot and sign a sworn statement that the ballot was destroyed, spoiled, lost or not received and present the statement to the county clerk or the municipal clerk prior to the time designated by law for the closing of the polls for that election. The county clerk and municipal clerk shall each keep a record of each replacement ballot provided.

Nothing in this section shall prevent a voter seeking a replacement ballot from obtaining such a ballot from the county clerk or municipal clerk anytime after ballots have been mailed to registered voters pursuant to subsection b. of section 2 of P.L.2005, c.148 (C.19:62-2) and before the day of the election or from mailing a replacement ballot to the county board of elections prior to the day of the election.
