In NJ’s primary elections, you must be a declared member of a party to vote in that party’s primary. Registered voters currently affiliated with a political party who wish to change their party affiliation must file a political party affiliation declaration form 55 days before a primary election. Registered voters currently not affiliated may declare their affiliation up to and including primary election day at the polls.
