The League of Women Voters of Northern Valley reminds all citizens that New Jersey's Special General Election for the office of U.S. Senate will take place on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. The voter registration deadline for the special general election is Wednesday, September 25, 2013.
“The Wednesday dates, both for the registration deadline and the date of the election, are highly unusual,” said Nike Bach, board member of the League of Women Voters of Northern Valley. “Last month a primary election was held, and the special election will be held in October. Then, three weeks later, there is the November General Election. The League is stepping up efforts to ensure voters are aware of deadlines and are prepared to vote."
The deadline to apply by mail for a vote by mail ballot is Wednesday, October 9. County clerks must receive the application by that date. The deadline to apply in-person for a vote by mail ballot is Tuesday, October 15 by 3 pm at your County Clerk’s office. Vote by mail applications are available at www.lwvnj.org .
