New Jersey residents will make some very important decisions at the polls this year. The State will elect a new governor – for the first time in eight years - and 120 members to the State’s Legislature. Of those 120 members, 40 will be Senators and 80 will be Assemblymen and Assemblywomen. In the next four years, the Governor and the Legislature will vote and take action on a number of bills and regulations that will greatly impact your life. That is why it’s critical to understand the voting process and learn more about the candidates before you head to the polls on Election Day. The representatives you send to Trenton will decide on budgets and laws that will likely impact services and supports for people with I/DD. They will make choices on special education, health care, employment, transportation, and other services you and your loved ones rely on in the community.
Voting is a big responsibility. We hope this 2017 Get Out the Vote Guide helps you as you make your way to the polls. It includes key dates, instructions on registering to vote and information on where and how you can cast a ballot.
