In South Jersey, all eyes will be on the race between Democratic Senator Jeff Van Drew and Republican Seth Grossman for the 2nd Congressional District seat being vacated by Congressman Frank LoBiondo.

Another big race in New Jersey is the race for United States Senate between major party candidates incumbent Democratic Senator Bob Menendez and Republican Bob Hugin.

Menendez is fighting to hold his seat in the Senate. His campaign has been plagued by his federal corruption trial last year, despite having all charges against him dropped.

New Jersey voters will also be casting their vote for this year's only state ballot question.

The question asks voters whether they approve or disapprove of the Securing Our Children's' Future Bond Act, which would allow the state to issue $500 million in bond grants.
