Division of Elections Announces Statewide Evening Voter Registration Hours

TRENTON – Attorney General Peter C. Harvey and Division of Elections Director Ramon de la Cruz announced today that a statewide master schedule of nighttime voter registration hours for the June 7 Primary Election is available via the Division’s Web site at www.njelections.org.

“Through evening registration hours, New Jerseyans who prefer to register in person have the scheduling flexibility they may need to do so,” said Attorney General Harvey. “Many people, by virtue of their jobs, child care responsibilities or any number of other factors, may find it difficult to visit a voter registration site during regular business hours.”

Director de la Cruz noted that, “By statute, every county is required to set, and provide a schedule for, evening voter registration hours. As a public service, we are centralizing this information in one place -- at the Division of Elections Web site – to enable those who need it to access it quickly and conveniently. We are committed to making the voting process as user-friendly and inclusive as possible.”

In order to register, anyone who wishes to vote must be a United States citizen, 18 years of age by the next election, and will have resided in the district for at least 30 days as of the election date. Those seeking to register must not be on parole, probation or serving a sentence for conviction on an indictable offense under any federal or state laws. Residents may register to vote either in person, with their municipal clerk or county Commissioner of Registration, or by mail. Residents who choose to register by mail can download a registration form from the Division of Elections Web site, and then mail the hard copy to their local county Commissioner of Registration. Mail-in registration forms can also be obtained from a municipal clerk, county Commissioner of Registration or the State Division of Elections. Forms can also be obtained at State Motor Vehicle Commission agencies, as well as a variety of other State offices.
