New Jersey's Electronic Voting and Virtual Meeting Statutes

Electronic Voting Statute

Adopted:  Assembly Bill (A3802)—or its companion bill in the Senate (S1293)  “An owner shall be allowed to choose to cast a ballot anonymously for the election of governing board members. An owner also shall be allowed to cast a ballot by mail, in person, or if the association permits, by electronic ballot. A mailed ballot or an electronic ballot shall be deemed to be a proxy for purposes of determining a quorum for the meeting at which the election is conducted."

Virtual Meeting Statute

New Jersey commonly permits corporations, and nonprofits to conduct remote and virtual meetings. Remote meetings contingent on an association’s articles of incorporation, charter, or  bylaws. Contact your association’s attorney to see what your community’s options are for virtual meetings based upon your governing documents.
