TRENTON – If you’re interested in participating in the June 7 primary in New Jersey, today is your last day to register to vote.

New Jersey now has online voter registration. You’ll need to provide your date of birth and one of the following forms of identification: A current, valid driver’s license or non-driver ID card from the Motor Vehicle Commission, or a Social Security number and the ability to provide a digital signature.

You can also register in person at your county’s commissioner of registration or superintendent of elections. It’s too late to do that by mail and be eligible for the primary, so it would have to be done in person.

Here’s the rest of the timeline for the primary:

May 31: Deadline to apply for a mail-in ballot by mail

June 1: Mailing of sample ballots

June 3 – June 5: Early in-person voting period. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

June 6, by 3 p.m.: Deadline for in-person mail-in ballot applications

June 7: Primary Election Day. It’s also the deadline for in-person submission of mail-in ballots to county boards of election by 8 p.m.

2022 primary for U.S. House elections in New Jersey

The filing deadline for candidates to run in the June 7, 2022 primary was Monday, April 4.

Sixty-three candidates met the filing deadline, including 41 Republicans and 22 Democrats, but some petitions were ultimately disqualified because they didn't have the required 200 signatures from eligible voters in their political party who reside in the district.

In total, there are 56 candidates: 36 Republicans and 20 Democrats. A few have recently suspended their campaigns but will remain on the ballot.
