Residents of the Greater Red Bank Green may register at their respective town halls during regular business hours, or at the Monmouth County Voter Registration Office, 300 Halls Mills Road, Freehold Township, which will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. to accommodate last-minute registrations in person. 

Registration forms are available on line at the Monmouth County Votes website and at town halls.

According to Red Bank Borough Clerk Pam Borghi, anyone who is currently registered as an “undeclared voter,” which means they did not choose a party affiliation such as Democrat, Republican or Independent, may vote in the primary, but must declare their party at the poll and will only be able to vote for candidates within that party.

For questions on registration, including party affiliation questions, please call the Monmouth County Commissioner of Registration at 732-431-7780.

In order to register to vote, an applicant must be at least 18 years of age and a U.S. citizen.  A driver’s license number or the last four digits of one’s Social Security number must be entered on the New Jersey Voter Registration form.

People on parole, probation or serving a sentence due to a conviction for an indictable offense under any federal or state laws are not eligible to vote.

Here’s a FAQ on voter registration. For more information in Red Bank, please call the clerk’s office at 732-530-2740.
