TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The deadline to register to vote in this year’s election has arrived.

Would-be voters must register by Tuesday if they want to cast their ballot in New Jersey’s Nov. 5 general election.

At the top of the ballot this year are all 80 seats in the Democrat-controlled general Assembly. Democrats control 54 seats, while Republicans hold 26.

To register, voters must fill out a registration form and then mail or deliver it to their county registration commissioner or superintendent of elections.
