NJ Voting Info: How to Register

There are two ways to register to vote in Hoboken (or change your address if already registered):

By mail: Fill out and send in the voter registration form below.

In person: Fill out the form below and bring it to the Office of the Superintendent of Elections, 257 Cornelison Ave., 4th Floor, Jersey City, NJ 07302 or at the Hoboken City Clerk office, 94 Washington Street.


To register to vote elsewhere in NJ:

Download the general or county-specific voter registration form and send it in. If you will need a mail-in ballot, you can send that application in along with your registration form, and make sure you send them BOTH to the county office.

NJ Voting Info: Mail-In Ballots

If you want to vote early or are unable to get to your polling place in person, apply for a Mail-In Ballot.

The deadline to do so in time for Election Day is 7 days before the Election if by mail, or by 3:00 p.m. on the day before the Election if in person at your County Clerk's office. Once you apply for a mail-in ballot, you won't be able to vote in person at your polling place.

Ballots can be sent to you by mail or picked up by an "Authorized Messenger"* (such as a family member; see application for more details) who will then bring it to you.

If you apply in person at the County Clerk's office and they give you the ballot then and there, you can, if you so choose, fill it out and give it right back to the County Clerk, who will make sure it gets to the office of the Superintendent of Elections/Commissioner of Registration and counted accordingly.

 
Ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received no later than 48 hours after Election Day.

 

NEW IN 2018:

If you received a mail-in ballot for the 2016 Presidential election, you will be automatically enrolled to receive one in the 2018 general election. If you want to opt out of this, contact your County Clerk.

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.
