Because your voice matters. Change and progress won’t happen unless Americans — like you — step up and speak out. Tired of the way things are going? Vote to change them. Happy with them? Vote to keep them. Either way, you can have a say in the way your world will look tomorrow, next year, or in 2025 by simply exercising your constitutional right to vote. Besides, you will get a sticker, and who doesn’t want a sticker? This year, New Jersey’s important Primary Election is June 2, and the big one — The General Election — where we choose the next president — in November 3, 2020.

It’s easy. First, make sure you’re eligible to vote, meaning:

  • You are a United States Citizen
  • You are at least 17 years old (though you cannot actually vote until you turn 18)
  • You have been a resident of your county for at least 30 days before the election
  • You are not currently serving a sentence, probation, or parole for a felony conviction

If you meet these basic requirements, then complete and print out a Voter Registration Application and/or Party Affiliation Form for your county from the state website here and mail the completed form to the County Commissioner of Registration or the Superintendent of Elections in your county.

Registering doesn’t cost anything, and it’s your ticket to participate. Don’t pass it up!

When the time comes to actually vote, you can do so at your designated polling location. These polling locations vary by precinct, and you can find yours by simply entering your address in the Polling Place Search on the state website.

If you’re unable to physically go to the polls on Election Day, there are options you can consider, such as early voting or voting absentee through the mail. For more information on these options, visit the New Jersey Division of Elections website.

New Jersey makes voting easy. Your participation makes a huge difference.
