Now is the Time to Encourage All Eligible New Jersey’s to Register to Vote in November 7 Election
As the Tuesday, October 17, 2017 deadline to register to vote in New Jersey’s November 7 gubernatorial election approaches, now is the time to register every eligible New Jersey resident.
Voter registration and mobilization efforts can increase voter turnout among low income renters and their allies and be critically important in making affordable housing a priority for both the next Governor and New Jersey Legislature. Not only will New Jerseyans be electing a new governor on November but every Senator and Assemblyperson in the New Jersey Legislature is up for election.
Organizations working to create affordable homes and homelessness across New Jersey are registering clients to vote. As one example, the Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless is inviting every new client that is screened to register to vote.
