May 17 is the deadline – June 7 is primary day

FREEHOLD, NJ – The deadline is fast approaching for those wishing to vote in the June 7 primary election. Registration must be completed by May 17.

Residents may register at the Monmouth County Voter Registration Office, 300 Halls Mills Rd., Freehold Township, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. On Tuesday, May 17 the office will remain open until 9 p.m.

If you prefer to register in the town in which you reside, call your municipal clerk for the hours and the location to register. In either case, a driver’s license and one other form of identification must be presented when registering in person. If you do not have a driver’s license, the last four digits of your Social Security number may be used.

All U.S. citizens at least 18 years of age by Primary Day, and not incarcerated, on probation or parole, are eligible to vote.

Save some time by downloading a copy of the New Jersey Voter Registration form, filling it out beforehand and taking it with you when you register. The form can be found on the County Clerk’s Web page of the Monmouth County Web site at www.visitmonmouth.com.

If you will be unable to vote in person on the June 4 primary, you may want to vote by mail. To do this, a Vote By Mail application form must reach the County Clerk’s Office no later than Tuesday, June 1.
