Acting Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is advising County residents who are not registered to vote that the deadline to register and vote in the June 2 primary is May 12.
All U.S. Citizens who will be 18 years of age or older on June 2 and who will have lived in the county 30 days prior to the primary are eligible to vote if they are not currently serving a sentence or on probation or parole for a felony conviction. Registration applications must include a NJ Driver’s License number, a MVC Non-driver ID number or the last four digits of the voter’s social security number.
Voter Registration Applications can be downloaded from the County website, here. Applications can be mailed in, be brought to your municipal clerk or be brought to the Monmouth County Voter Registration Office, 300 Halls Mills Rd. in Freehold Township. Mailed applications must be received by May 12 in order to the new voter to be eligible to vote in the primary.
Partisan candidates, Democrats and Republicans are officially nominated by members of the Partys voting in primaries. Those nominated face off in the general election which is on November 2 this year. Registered voters who have not declared a Party affiliation can do so at anytime prior to the primary, including signing a declaration at the polling place prior to voting in the primary.
“Residents may register at the Monmouth County Voter Registration Office, 300 Halls Mills Rd. in Freehold Township, until 9 p.m. May 12,” said Hanlon. “To register in the town in which you reside, call your municipal clerk for the hours and the location.”
