NJ Voting Info: How to Register

Voter Registration: Who

To register to vote in NJ, you must be:
  • A US citizen;
  • At least 17 (though you cannot vote until you turn 18);
  • A resident of the county for 30 days before the election;
      • If you are in college, you have the option to register from your college address or your parent's address. Those who live on campus can register to vote at their college address.
      • Commuters, including those who live off campus, must register where they live.
  • Not serving a sentence of incarceration as the result of a conviction of any indictable offense under the laws of this or another state or of the United States.
    • Note: Once you've completed your sentence and are no longer on parole or probation, you regain the right to vote and must complete a new voter registration form to do so.
    • If you have any questions, please contact your County Commissioner of Registration.

The registration deadline to vote in the next election is always 21 DAYS BEFORE that election.

Voter Registration: How

You can register to vote either online or with the general or county-specific voter registration paper form. Along with registering to vote, you can also choose to request a mail-in ballot for the next election, and/or designate a party affiliation.

You should also use a registration form if you are already registered but need to change your address, name or signature on file.

You can return your paper registration forms either through the mail (the earlier the better!) or by bringing them to the County Commissioner of Registration or Superintendent of Elections for your county.

HOBOKEN RESIDENTS (including students who live on campus)

The local elections offices can help with questions or to drop off a registration form if you don't register online:

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 (legislative) and federal (congressional) level.

Due to Jersey City's size and demographics, it is covered by two congressional and state legislative districts.

Please note: Following the 2020 Census, the state of New Jersey underwent a redistricting process to ensure the state's congressional and state legislative districts better reflect the state's current population. The federal redistricting map has taken effect and there is no change to either Hoboken or Jersey City's congressional districts.

The new state legislative district map will take effect in the 2023 election cycle, at which point Hoboken will become part of the 32nd legislative district, and Jersey City the 31st and 32nd.

For more information and to find out your new district:


New Jersey has 12 congressional districts which each elect 1 Representative to serve in Washington, D.C.


New Jersey has 40 legislative districts which each elect 1 State Senator and 2 Assembly Members to serve in Trenton, N.J.
