WATCH: How to register to vote in NJ for 2020 election

The deadline to register is Tuesday, Oct. 13

Only those who are registered can vote in November’s general election. You can check your voter registration status on the state Division of Elections website, where you can also find a voter information portal with links to registration and other information.

If you are not registered, you have until Oct. 13 to do so and you can complete the form online.

If you moved or if your signature has changed, you may want to check your voter registration. If your current signature does not match the one that has been on file since you registered, your vote could be questioned or discounted. You can update your signature on the Division of Elections website.

County elections officials can help with all registration questions or problems. You can find out how to reach them here. If you plan to visit your county’s division of elections office, make sure to check their hours as some offices may have restricted opening due to COVID-19.
