Burlington County elections officials are reminding residents to register to vote by Oct. 18 to participate in this year’s General Election in November.

“Our nation’s democracy works best and is strongest when we all participate in it. We’re encouraging all eligible U.S. citizens who aren’t yet registered to do so before the deadline and learn about the different ways to cast your ballot,” said Burlington County Superintendent of Elections Dawn Marie Addiego. “You can now vote by mail, drop box or machine. All three methods are safe and secure, but it all begins with being registered. It’s the first step to making sure your voice is heard.”

How to register

Registration can be done in person at most municipal buildings and also at the Burlington County Superintendent of Elections Office at 50 Rancocas Road, Mount Holly, which is open from 8 AM to 4 PM on weekdays. 

The Superintendent of Elections Office will have special hours from 8 AM to 9 PM on Oct. 18 to handle last-minute registrations.

An eligible voter must be a U.S. citizen who is at least 18 years old and be a resident of Burlington County for at least 30 days before the November 8 election date.

Voters can also register online at or obtain a paper voter registration form that can be mailed to the Superintendent of Elections Office. All completed registration forms must arrive at the office before closing on October 18th for the voter to be eligible to participate in the upcoming election.

New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission voter registration

Eligible voters may also register to vote at New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission offices while applying for or renewing a driver’s license or non-driver identification card or other MVC office business. The MVC will report the information to the New Jersey Division of Elections.

Registered voters will also be asked if they want to update their information during MVC transactions at MVC offices and during online transactions.

Voters are encouraged to keep their information up to date, but they should be careful to make sure information is updated correctly and they should opt out of updating their information if they don’t need to because it can create duplicate voter records and signatures. 

“Every valid ballot will be counted, but unnecessarily updating voter information at the MVC can create some additional steps for some voters, so we’re encouraging registered voters to be careful when completing MVC transactions,” Addiego said. 

For questions about voter registration, please call the Superintendent of Elections Office at 609-265-5111.
