New Jersey Mock Election

October 2019

"The ballot is more powerful than the bullet." -Abraham Lincoln

This year, New Jersey is electing members of the General Assembly, as well as a Senate race in District One. Three questions will also be included to facilitate classroom discussion on the importance of voting and how a democracy can best ensure that all citizens are able to exercise their voting rights. It is essential that our future citizens understand the importance of the state legislature and the impact they have on the functioning of our democracy and the quality of life in New Jersey.
The 2019 Election is the perfect time to introduce students to the process of voting. As students participate in the mock election, they will:
  • Learn about our system of government and elections
  • Study the issues and form opinions
  • Vote (online or offline) on candidates and this year's issues

Students will be able to vote October 16 - 30

Beginning of October, teachers will be able to register their classes for online voting on this page.
