October 12 Is Voter Registration Deadline For Upcoming Election

TRENTON – Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, the Secretary of State, and New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) Chief Administrator Raymond P. Martinez joined elected leaders and officials from Monmouth County yesterday to remind residents statewide of the upcoming voter registration deadline for the Nov. 2 general election.

The deadline to register to vote in the November election is Tuesday, Oct. 12.

To be eligible, an individual must be a United States citizen, 18 years of age by Nov. 2, and a resident of the county for 30 days prior to the election.  Residents who are serving a sentence, or are on parole or probation as a result of a conviction of an indictable offense under state or federal law, are not eligible to vote.  If you are no longer serving a sentence, or no longer on parole or probation, you can register to vote in New Jersey by completing a new voter registration form.

“New Jersey enjoys a long and rich history of civic engagement, as our more than 5.2 million registered voters statewide can attest,” said Lt. Governor/Secretary of State Kim Guadagno. “With the general election fast approaching, it’s important that everyone not yet registered is aware of how and where to do so before the Oct. 12 deadline. It’s great to have a partner like the MVC to help spread the word far and wide.”

For in-person registration, a detailed list of statewide Commissioners of Registration, their location, as well as information on extended evening hours for Oct. 12, can be found at the Division of Elections website: www.NJElections.org.

Registration forms are also available at any one of the Division of Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) offices. A list of all 42 MVC locations statewide can be found at www.NJ.gov/mvc. To date, MVC offices have collected nearly 48 percent of all new voter registrations this year.
