Time to vote

Time to vote

The backbone of a democracy is the right to vote, and democracy is strongest when citizens exercise that right. Our government of the people works best when the people participate. As president of the National Council of Jewish Women in Essex County, I would like to remind everyone that there is still time to register for the upcoming June 3 primary. For details, visit state.nj.us/state/elections. You must register no later than May 13 to be eligible to vote in the upcoming primary.

Don’t feel like going to the polls? In New Jersey, any voter can now vote by mail in any election for any reason. You can print out a vote by mail application at the same website you used to register. Now there is no excuse not to vote!
