Hello New Jersey, if you want to vote in  the 2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered. If  you have a New Jersey ID, drivers license,   or Social Security Number you can register online.  If not, you’ll need to print out an application   form and mail it in.

Links to both forms are  at But either way you   register, you need to do it by October 18th. Then it’s time to make your plan for   how you’re going to vote.

If you’re going to be out of town on   election day or just want to vote early from the  comfort of your own couch, you can request that   your ballot be mailed to you. You have until  November 1st to request an absentee ballot,   but the sooner you ask for one, the sooner  you can get it, fill it out, and mail it back,   or drop it off in a drop box or at your Board  of Elections office by November 8th.   You can also vote in person early from  October 29th through November 6th at an   early voting location. You can find all those  locations and their hours at this link.   Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.  You can look up where you’ll vote at that same   link, and polls are open from 6am to 8pm.

If this is your first time voting in New Jersey,   you’ll need to bring proof of address with  you. a New Jersey drivers license, state ID,   passport, military or student ID or a utility  bill, paycheck, or bank statement with your   name and address on it will all work. So once you have your plan for how you’re going   to vote, where you need to go, what time you’re  going to vote, and what ID you’re going to bring,   you just need to follow the plan, and  go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that you can vote  for ahead of time, you can find a sample ballot   at so you have time to  research candidates and make your decisions. You   don’t have to vote for everything for your ballot  to count, but this is your best chance to choose   who gets to make decisions about your  life: all the way from congress to   your city council or school board.

We’ve put all the links for everything   you need to register, vote early, find your  polling place, and locate your sample ballot   at Thank you for voting!
