Statewide Voter Registration System glitches continues

Note: The webpage regained functionality not long after this article was published.

The New Jersey Division of Elections webpage that allows voters to find their polling place crashed Tuesday morning.

“While the State website is down, if you need to find your polling place: 1) Call 1-609-292-3760. State employees will help, 2) Find the info on your county website, 3) Use the @LWVNJ site: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…, or 4) check the postcard you received in the mail,” said Henal Patel, director of the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice’s Democracy and Justice Program.

The Statewide Voter Registration System has for weeks experienced frequent crashes.

The system is used by voters to check their registration and identify polling locations. Elections officials use the system to process mail-in ballots and vote-by-mail applications, among other things.
