League of Women Voters Provide Deadlines For Primary, Special Election, for U.S. Senate

To the Editor:

The cost of holding two special elections for New Jersey’s Senate seat — and the importance of this election — merit a large turnout. Be sure you can vote as you wish to!

For the Tuesday, August 13 special primary: June 19 is the deadline to change party affiliation (if you wish to). July 23 is the deadline to register to vote or change address. August 6 is the deadline to apply by mail for a mail-in ballot. Note: your County Clerk must receive your application by this date.

For the Wednesday, October 15 special election: September 24 is the deadline to register to vote or change address. October 9 is the deadline to apply by mail for a mail-in ballot. Again, your County Clerk must receive application by this date.

Google “voter registration” plus the name of your county to find links to download the Voter Registration Application or the Political Party Affiliation Declaration Form for changing party affiliation. You will also find the address to which to mail the forms. For a vote-by-mail application, google “Vote by Mail” plus the name of your county. You can then download the form or call for more information.

If you have questions, contact the League of Women Voters of the Princeton Area at lwvprinceton@gmail.com.

Please keep these dates in mind, assure your eligibility, and remember to vote!
