Start Your Voting Journey Here

First time? That’s awesome! Check out the first-time voter checklist here to see what it’s all about.

Learn about voter eligibility.

I want to Register

Great! This is the first step. You MUST be registered by October 13th in order to vote in the presidential election on November 3rd. As a college student, you can register from your school or home address. If you are already registered, but you have moved to college or back home, you should change your address to the location you plan to vote in. It’s important to use the address you will be at on Election Day November 3rd, because this is where your mail-in ballot will automatically be sent.

Register to vote in NJ online!

Get your pre-stamped mail-in voter registration for your state.

I want to Vote!

Now that you are registered, it’s time to get ready to vote! Here are 3 steps you can take to make Election Day on November 3rd as easy as possible!

Step 1: View Your Ballot (see who your candidates will be)

Step 2: All NJ voters will be automatically mailed a ballot this year, but if you are a first time voter, you should request one. Request your ballot in NJ. If you are from a different state, click here to get info on voting in your state.

And learn how to fill out your mail-in ballot. Make sure you mail it or put it in a county drop box by November 3rd!

Step 3: Find Your Polling Place (if you intend to vote in person)

Find A Ballot Drop Off Location (Hint: There’s one at the Hackettstown Municipal building on Stiger Street!) You must drop off your ballot in the municipality in which you are registered.
