Do you need to register to vote? Have you moved? Do you need to change your political party affiliation? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have until Sunday, July 27, 2008 to register or update your existing voter registration for the Primary election on August 26, 2008.

Voter registration is available at any Division of Elections regional office, at municipal clerk's office, at the Division of Motor Vehicles and at many of the libraries. Registration applications are also available at the Division's website.
