How Can I Register to Vote Without Disclosing my Address?

P.L. 1994, Chapter 155, Voter Registration Address Confidentiality, allows a victim of domestic violence who has obtained a permanent restraining order against a defendant pursuant to the "Prevention of Domestic Violence Act of 1991." N.J.S.A.2C:25-17 et seq., and who fears further violent acts by the defendant, to register to vote without disclosing the victim's street address. Such a individual would, instead, leave the space for a street address on the permanent registration form blank and attach thereto a copy of the restraining order and a note which indicates that the person fears further violent acts by the defendant and which contains a mailing address, post office box or other contact point where mail can be received. Election officials would provide the person with a map of the municipality in which the person resides which shows the various voting districts. The person would indicate the voting district in which the person resides and shall be permitted to vote at the polling place for that district.
