If you are currently a US citizen, at least 17 years old, and not registered to vote, you can register to vote online or by paper. If you register to vote by paper, you will need to send your paper application to your County Commissioner of Registration or Superintendent of Elections for your county with ample time before Election Day. For both modes of registration, you will need your birthday and either your driver’s license or social security number.

For others who may not know if they are registered or not, you can use the “Voter Search” feature on the New Jersey voting registration site to view your registration status.
