Voters have until Tuesday, July 23 to register to vote in next month’s special U.S. Senate primary election.

Dale Kramer, chief deputy superintendent of elections in Morris County, said any U. S. citizen who is 18 years of age on or before Aug. 13, the date of the primary election, may register to vote, as long as he or she is not incarcerated, on parole or on probation because of a conviction for an indictable offense.

To register to vote in Morris County, Kramer said a person must have resided in the county 30 days before the election.

An individual may register to vote by completing a registration application form, which is available at the Morris County Superintendent of Elections office, by mail or by downloading a form from the county’s Election Center Web site, www.morriselections.org.  Forms are also available at any municipal clerk’s office.

Completed forms must be mailed or delivered to the Morris County Superintendent of Elections, Commissioner of Registration, P.O. Box 900, Morristown, NJ, 07963-0900.

More information about voter registration may be obtained by calling the office of the Superintendent of Elections at 973-285-6715.

The office will have extended hours July 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. to accommodate those who wish to register.  The office is on the second floor of the Morris County Administration and RecordsBuilding, 10 Court Street in Morristown.

Next month’s special primary election precedes a special election Oct. 16 to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant following the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg.
