Voter Registration WeekendElection Day is coming up!  New Jersey’s General Election will take place on November 8, 2011. This year, all 120 seats in the New Jersey Senate and Assembly are up for election.  The results of this very important election will determine fiscal and policy decisions that will impact our communities for years. It is crucial that every eligible resident registers and votes on November 8.  The polls will be open from 6 am – 8 pm.

The deadline to register to vote or to submit a change of name or address for the November 8 election is Tuesday, October 18. The registration form is available on the League of Women Voters of New Jersey’s website, www.lwvnj.org. If you are not sure if you are registered you can look up that information on the New Jersey Division of Elections website, www.njelections.org.

In New Jersey, any voter can vote by mail, using a “Vote by Mail” ballot (formerly absentee ballot) in any election, but the deadlines for applying are quickly approaching. Applications can be found on the League of Women Voters of New Jersey website, www.lwvnj.org. If you choose to send your application by mail, it must be received by your County Clerk no later than Tuesday, November 1. There is a 3 p.m. deadline on November 7 to apply for a “Vote by Mail” ballot in person at the County Clerk’s office.
