The Basics: Polls in the Garden State will be open at 6 a.m. They will close at 8 p.m.

Eligibility: In order to register to vote in New Jersey you must be a U.S. citizen who is at least 18-years-old by the next election as well as a resident of the county you’re voting in for 30 days before the election. You must also not be currently serving a sentence, probation or parole because of a felony conviction.
