Hoboken Public Library is here to help you register to vote.

National Voter Registration Day is Tuesday, September 20, 2022!

On this day, you will be able to visit any library branch—and even some parks!—and register to vote. We will have voter registration forms available in English and Spanish, Mail-in Ballot applications, and staff ready to assist with online or paper voter registration.

Voter FAQs

What if I have been impacted by the justice system?

What if I am currently experiencing homelessness?
You can list your shelter address, a street corner, or park as your residence on your voter registration form.

Do I need to show ID to vote?
