Livingston Voter Registration Deadline is Approaching


LIVINGSTON, NJ — The deadline to register to vote in Livingston on Election Day in November is Tuesday, Oct. 18.

Essex County Clerk Christopher Durkin encourages all Essex County residents to return “Voter Registration Forms” and “Vote by Mail Applications” as soon as possible to County Election Offices.”

The highest amount of voter registrations and vote by mail applications are filled out and processed during a presidential election with the highest volume coming during the two months leading up to Election Day on Nov. 8.

The Presidential Election heightens the awareness of more and more citizens every four years to be engaged in the voting process. Voter Registration drives are being held throughout the State of New Jersey.

All voter registration forms should be returned to the County Commissioner of Registration at the Hall of Records Room 429, 465 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Newark, NJ 07102 as soon as possible to ensure that the voter’s name appears in the poll book on Election Day and to allow for a stress-free voting process.

Voter Registration Forms now allow a voter to register as a first-time voter, change his or her voting address, change his or her name and/or change his or her “Party” all on the same form.

Since 2003, newly registered voters are asked to provide the last four digits of their social security number or their driver's license number on the Voter Registration Form. It usually takes about 48 hours to confirm

the voter information through the statewide database and to be officially registered to vote.

There are many prospective voters who fill out a “vote by mail” application at the same time they register to vote, or change their address or change their name and the County Clerk's Office cannot process the vote by mail application and send a ballot to a voter without the voter registration form being processed first.

The deadline for vote by mail applications to be received by the County Clerk's Office and be mailed to the voter is Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016. A voter can go to the County Clerk's Office at the Hall of Records 465 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd Room 247 Newark in person and apply for a ballot and vote the ballot Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

The deadline for a voter to request a ballot in person or by messenger is the day before Election Day: Monday, Nov. 7 by 3 p.m. A registered voter of Essex County can be a messenger of a Vote by Mail ballot for a maximum of three voters including themselves.

For more information, contact Christopher Durkin, Essex County Clerk, at 973-650-0771.

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.
