NJ Voting Info: How to Vote

Once you're registered, you can vote either in person or by mail.

"In New Jersey, any voter can vote by mail for any reason or no reason at all using the Vote By Mail ballot.  The Vote by Mail legislation allows voters to avoid long lines at polls, and gives them a chance to vote in the privacy of their own home at their convenience." (Hudson County Division of Elections)

DEADLINE TO APPLY FOR A MAIL-IN BALLOT:

BY MAIL: 7 DAYS BEFORE THE ELECTION

IN PERSON: 1 DAY BEFORE THE ELECTION

Note: Once you submit the application in person, you will be given the ballot, which you can then bring to the county Board of Elections. The ballot must be received by 8:00 p.m. the day of the election.

Public Questions

In every election, you vote both for candidates for office as well as on questions that pertain to the issues facing the population of your state. It is useful to know beforehand the questions that you will vote on so you know where you stand.

NJ Voting Info: Party Affiliation

When you register to vote, you may choose to affiliate with a party at that time, or you may choose to remain unaffiliated. Unaffiliated voters may vote in general elections, but under NJ's closed primary system, only voters affiliated with a major party (Democrat or Republican) may vote in that party's primary.

If you are registered with one party and wish to change your affiliation before a primary election, you must do so 55 days before primary election day.

If you are unaffiliated and wish to declare affiliation with a party to vote in that party's primary, you can do so up to and including primary election day.

NJ Voting Info: What's My District?

Every address in the U.S. is part of a number of different organizational frames known as districts. What district you are in determines by whom you are represented on the state and federal level.

Hoboken: 33rd legislative district, 8th Congressional district

Jersey City: 31st/33rd legislative districts, 8th/10th Congressional districts (use the links below to search with a full address)
