Voter Registration Deadline Approaches
Fill out your voter registration application before it's too late.
Election Day is less than two months away—are you registered to vote?
With the bluster of the Democratic and Republican conventions and the inevitable mudslinging, lofty promises and debates among friends and family, it’s important to remember that none of it matters if you don’t exercise your right to vote.
The deadline to register to vote in the November election is Oct. 16. Applications must be filled out for new voters and if you’ve moved or changed your name.
Register by mail
Print and fill out a Voter Application Form from the state. Mail the form to:
Gloucester County Superintendent of Elections
PO Box 352
Woodbury, NJ 08096-9946
The state makes it easy—the application form can be mailed for free by following the folding and taping instructions.
Register in person
You can drop off your pre-completed form in person to the superintendent of elections, Stephanie Salvatore, at the county Board of Elections office at 550 Grove Rd., West Deptford, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.
And you can pick up forms in person from the superintendent of elections at the address above, weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; or at the West Deptford Township Municipal Building.
College students are permitted to vote from their college address or their parents’ homes. They must file a new application if they’re not already registered where they choose to vote.
