These forms must be mailed or hand delivered to your county
Commissioner of Registration or Superintendent of Elections.
Faxed copies cannot be accepted because an original signature is
required to register. If you have any questions about registering,
please contact the League of Women Voters of New Jersey
at 1-800-792-VOTE (8683).
