Voter Registration


 

If you are eligible to vote in New Jersey, you may register to vote at a motor vehicle agency while applying for/renewing a driver’s license or non-driver identification (ID) card. The MVC will report the information to the New Jersey Division of Elections. 

Voter registration deadline is 21 days before an election

If you will not be conducting a driver’s license or non-driver ID card transaction and wish to register to vote or change your address with the Division of Elections please visit: New Jersey Division of Elections at www.NJELECTIONS.org or call 1-877-NJVOTER (1-877-658-6837) to have an application mailed to you.

Update your voting address

You may change your voter address by doing so online through the MVC website by clicking here. After you change your address with the MVC, you will be asked whether you would like your address change to update your voter record.  Be sure to click “Yes” on the signature pad when answering this question, and the MVC will send a notice to the Division of Elections, notifying them of your change.

An address change confirmation page will also be provided to you at the end of the transaction.  Please visit www.NJELECTIONS.org for more voter information.


Your County Commissioner of Registration will notify you if your application is accepted. If it is not accepted, you will be notified on how to complete and/or correct the application. 

Address changes reported online or via mail with the MVC are forwarded to the New Jersey Division of Elections. If you do not receive confirmation of the change, please contact your local Commissioner of Registration. A listing of Commissioners can be found at nj.gov/state/elections/voting-information-local-officials.html.

If you wish to get a driver’s license or non-driver ID card displaying your new address, you must visit a motor vehicle agency. You will have to provide the 6 Points of ID verification requirements and pay a fee.
