EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Five municipalities in Middlesex County have coordinated efforts to hold non-partisan voter registration drives in their communities.  The event will be held on Monday, October 2nd, 6:00-8:00pm in each municipality.  Participating mayors include: Mayor Gayle Brill Mittler of Highland Park, Mayor John Krenzel of South River, Mayor Brad Cohen of East Brunswick, Mayor Brian Wahler of Piscataway, and Mayor Peter Cammarano of Metuchen.  Locations in each municipality are listed below.

            The cooperative effort, coordinated by Highland Park Mayor Gayle Brill Mittler, will be a non-partisan instruction session during which residents can fill in the application to register to vote, and mail it in to the Middlesex County Commission of Registration.  Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the registration forms.  The event is free for the public.

            “All of us have had different life experiences which shape our viewpoints and partisan affiliations. But they blend together to create the various tapestries that are our communities.  As Mayors, our goal with this voter drive is to ensure that everyone has a voice in the direction of our government and that we can hold our leaders accountable,” said Mayor Brad Cohen. “This is the bedrock of democracy and one of our most sacred rights as Americans. We owe it to all those who have fought and died to preserve this right.”
