Will I ever be required to re-register?

Voter Registration in New Jersey is permanent except when the voter has moved from the County in which he has registered or changed his/her name. A voter who moves within the same election district remains registered and may be allowed to vote for two years.

If a voter moves within the County at least 29 days prior to an election, the voter must file a Change of Address notice with the County Board of Elections.

Voters who move within the County within the 29 days preceding the election, may vote at their new designated polling place by means of a “Failsafe Ballot”.  You should contact your Municipal Clerk for this information.
