Have you skipped a few primaries? Maybe you haven't cast a ballot for the Board of Education in years.
Are you worried that maybe you've been dropped from the voter rolls?
Here's a quick way to check your voter status. Go to the NJ Division of Elections at this link and fill in some basic information, and you'll instantly find out if you're registered to vote.
All you need is your first and last name, and your month and year of birth. The information will let you know if you're on the rolls, and even tell you the date you registered.
Although the Oct. 16 deadlne to register to vote has passed, you can still apply for a mail-in ballot if you can't make it to the polls in person. You have until Oct. 30 - seven days before the Nov. 6 election - to make your application by mail to the Monmouth County Clerk's office.
You can also apply in person at the county clerk's office in Freehold until 3 p.m. the day before the election to get a mail-in ballot.
Remember, for it to be counted, the mail-in ballot has to be received by the County Board of Elections no later then 8 p.m. on Election Day.
