New Jersey residents have until Tuesday to register to vote in this year’s presidential election.

The Nov. 8 contest pits Democrat Hillary Clinton against Republican Donald Trump.

Residents will also be casting votes for House seats and deciding ballot questions on casino expansion and requiring gas tax revenues be spent only on transportation.

New Jersey leans Democratic in presidential years and is not considered a battleground state, although Republican Gov. Chris Christie is a top surrogate for Trump.

New Jersey is offering extended hours Tuesday for voter registration.  

The registrant must complete a Voter Registration Application and/or Party Affiliation Form. Mail or deliver the Voter Registration Application and/or Party Affiliation Form to the County Commissioner of Registration or Superintendent of Elections for your county.

You can check to see if you are currently registered to vote in New Jersey by visiting the New Jersey Division of Elections website
