Election Day may seem far away, but November 7th will be here before you know it! That's why The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute created a Get Out the Vote Guide to help you understand the voting process and learn more about the candidates on the ballot. In a questionnaire, we asked gubernatorial candidates Kim Guadagno and Phil Murphy where they stood on the issues impacting people with I/DD and their families, and their responses are printed in our Guide.
In addition to electing a new governor - for the first time in eight years - New Jerseyans will elect 120 members to the State's Legislature. Of those 120 members, 40 will be Senators and 80 will be Assemblymen and Assemblywomen. Learn more below about the voting process, the candidates running for office and the resources you may need when heading to the polls.
