Moving Resources


Moving to or from Bergen County?  Here are some phone numbers and websites to make your move less stressful.

 

Changing your Address

File a change of address at least 10 days before moving.  You can file the change at your local post office or online.

 

Voter Registration

If you're moving to, from or within Bergen County, please make sure to update your voter registration information.  You may register to vote by completing a registration application form at the Bergen County Superintendent of Elections office or by mail.  Forms are also available at any Municipal Clerk’s office, or other public agencies.  For further information, please call the Superintendent of Elections office at 201-336-6100 between the hours of 8:30AM and 4:30PM or visit their website.

 

1.   Moving within Bergen County:  If you move within Bergen County, you must file a written change of address with this office.

2.   A voter who moves from one election district to another in the SAME town or moves from one town to another in Bergen County, before election day, and has not notified the Superintendent’s office in writing of this change before the deadline date, must go to your new polling location on election day, in the municipality of your new residence in order to vote on a provisional ballot.  You can call your local municipal clerk or the Superintendent of Elections at 201-336-6100 to locate your new polling place.

3.   Moving from/to another county:  If you move to another county, more than 30 days before an election, you must re-register to vote in the new county.  If you move to another county less than 30 days before an election, you vote at your previous polling place in Bergen County for only that election.
