College students register to vote in New Jersey by following the standard application process: every prospective voter must submit a voter registration application.
You can register to vote if:
You are a United States citizen
I am at least 17 years old, and understand that I may not vote until reaching the age of 18.
You will be a resident of the State and county 30 days before the election
You are NOT currently serving a sentence, probation or parole because of a felony conviction
If you are in college, you have the option to register from your college address or your parent's address. There are good reasons for registering and voting at either residence, but keep in mind, the final choice is yours.
The registration deadline to vote is 21 days prior to Election Day
You will receive a sample ballot about 1 week before the election that will indicate where your polling place is or you can use our polling place locator.
