The Republican National Committee

 

Welcome to the

 Bergen County GOP

The Bergen County Republican Organization is made up of county committee, and elected local, county and state legislators.

 Note: New Voter Registration deadline is October 18 and only      registered voters can cast an absentee ballot to vote by mail!
 Here’s what you need to do in a nutshell: 
1. First see if you are registered to vote and where:
Public Voter Record Search

2. You will need to fill out the “Vote by Mail” form and mail or deliver it to your County Clerk, and include identification (i.e. drivers license) to prove you live in that county.

Here is a link to the State document to register to vote by mail:
Vote By Mail Form

3. You need to do this NOW!  You will then receive a ballot to vote by mail.

4. When you receive your ballot – fill it out immediately and mail it in! Only a mailed ballot will count.

Below is some general information for voting in New Jersey 
To register in New Jersey you must be:
  • A United States citizen
  • At least 17 years old, and understand that you may not vote until reaching the age of 18.
  • A resident of the county for 30 days before the election.
  • NOT currently serving a sentence, probation or parole because of a felony conviction

The registrant must complete a Voter Registration Application and/or Party Affiliation Form. Mail or deliver the Voter Registration Application and/or Party Affiliation Form to the County Commissioner of Registration or Superintendent of Elections for your county.

Pursuant to the federal “Help America Vote Act of 2002” (HAVA), if you registered to vote by mail in your county after January 1, 2003, and never voted in a federal election in the county, you were required to provide your county commissioner of registration with identification.

Whenever a person delivers a ballot to the county board, that person shall provide proof of the person’s identity in the form of a New Jersey driver’s license, or another form of identification issued or recognized as official by the federal government, the State, or any of its subdivisions, providing the identification carries the full address and signature of the person. The person shall sign a record maintained by the county of all mail-in ballots personally delivered to it.

A voter may vote by mail by completing the Application for Vote by Mail Ballot  and returning the application to their County Clerk.

If you do not show identification, you will vote by provisional ballot and have until the close of business on the second day after the election to provide identification to the applicable county election office. You will be given a hand-out at the polling place that will tell you which county election office to contact.

To receive your ballot by mail, the application must be received by the County Clerk 7 days prior to the election.

 

A voter may also apply in person to the County Clerk until 3:00 p.m., the day before the election.
The County Clerk cannot accept faxed or emailed copies of a Application for Vote by Mail Ballot, unless you are a Military or Overseas Voter, since an original signature is required.
