To Vote, You Must Be Registered!

Are you a registered voter?  Do you know how to register, how to complete a mail-in ballot, where to vote should you choose to vote in-person?  The New Jersey Division of Elections – Register to Vote! has a helpful website that you can use to answer these and other questions regarding who can register as well as forms that are translated into multiple languages.  Also check this site, Election Governance in NJ for additional information.

Who can register?

  • A United States citizen
  • At least 17 years old, though you may not vote until you have reached the age of 18
  • A resident of the county for 30 days before the election
  • A person not serving a sentence of incarceration as the result of a conviction of any indictable offense under the laws of this or another state or of the United States.

Who is not eligible to register:

  • You are serving a sentence of Incarceration as a result of a conviction of an indictable offense under the laws of this or another state or of the United States.

Be sure to register 21 days prior to an election.  With the challenges that the US Post Office faces these days, be certain that if you do plan to vote-by-mail, mail your ballot early.
