Upcoming Event


Encouraging students to register to vote. If a students has never registered before or if they need to update their address, they need to complete a registration form. If students have changed residences or are living at a new address from where they were previously registered, they need to update their registration.

Printing out New Jersey Voter Registration Forms (attached) and helping to promote the availability of forms (flyer attached). I have also included a completed sample form and an information sheet. If the Registration Form is printed double sided, students can send in directly (postage not needed). If printed as one-sided, students can drop them off at a campus location Monday – Friday between 9:00a.m. – 5:00.  

All forms must be dropped off by noon October 15th
