Register to Vote
We still see a world where no community is left voiceless — a world that improves life outcomes for all children through the power of communities making their voices heard by voting.
We know that real community change happens through civic engagement and participation in our democratic processes. We’re committed to that change and engagement by creating a strong culture of voting in our communities.
New Jersey voters will cast ballots for the President, for the Senate, and for seats representing us in Congress.
We have to come together, take our power back, and vote on November 3rd.
All active, registered voters should automatically receive a ballot in the mail for the November 2020 election.
A voter’s registration can be marked as inactive if they did not vote in one of the last two federal elections or if election mail sent to their address was returned. Inactive voters will not automatically get a ballot. Inactive voters can still vote by mail, by requesting a ballot from the county clerk or by using the voter registration form and checking the vote-by-mail box.
