Polls Open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Today is the day to make your voice heard. There are few elections that will empower voters like today’s will. New Jerseyans will have the chance to raise our state’s minimum wage and include an annual cost of living increase by voting “Yes” on Ballot Question #2. The importance of this vote cannot be understated as it will provide a long-overdue wage increase to over 400,000 hard working families in our state. This money would immediately be spent on basic goods and services benefiting local economies and helping communities to grow.
It is up to us to elect Senator Barbara Buono as our next governor because she is a tried and true champion for working families, while the current governor continues to distort facts in order to justify his failed economic record. Governor Christie has also gone to extraordinary lengths to fund a war chest which he has used to unleash a massive wave of attack ads against our endorsed candidates. Losing control of the legislature would spell disaster for working families, and unleash an all-out anti-union agenda including Right to Work (for Less). Therefore, it is imperative that we stand with legislators who will stand with us to support a progressive vision for uplifting New Jersey families.
We are extremely grateful to our union brothers and sisters and our community partners who have worked day and night to move this campaign forward. As the final hours of the election cycle approach, we ask you to keep up the great work until polls close. Together we will make this election a historic victory for working families.
