College Student Voting In New Jersey

Students can establish residency in New Jersey if they have a present intention to remain at their New Jersey school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal home. Any other interpretation of the residency laws is unconstitutional. In New Jersey, you can vote from your college address as long as you have lived there for at least 30 days before the election.

If you lived in New Jersey before moving out of state to attend school, but you wish to establish or keep your New Jersey voting residency, you should have no problem doing so unless you have already registered to vote in another state. Like all states, New Jersey allows students to keep their voting residency even if they move out of the county or state to attend school.If you have established residency in another state and are moving back to New Jersey with the intent to reside here, you will have to follow the normal registration procedures to re-register at home.

Mover's Guide: New Jersey

Under federal law, if you move within 30 days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.

If you moved to New Jersey from another state, you must register to vote in New Jersey to be able to vote. The last day to register in time to vote in the next election is twenty-one days before the election.

If you moved from out of state, you are only eligible to vote if you have been a resident of New Jersey and of your county for at least thirty days prior to the day of the election in which you want to vote.

If you moved to a new address that is covered by the same polling place as your old address, you can vote at that polling place after confirming your change of address in writing. This is true regardless of how close to the election you moved.

If you moved to a new address within the same county but with a different polling place, you can vote a provisional ballot at the new polling place after confirming your change of address in writing. No identification is necessary to prove your new address.

If you moved to a new address in a different county within New Jersey within 30 days of the election, you can vote at the polling place associated with your former address. If you moved to a new address in a different county more than 30 days before an election you should complete a new registration form to update your registration records
