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

This year, New Jersey is electing a United States Senator and members of the House of Representatives. It is essential that our future citizens understand the importance of Congress and the Legislative Branch, and the impact they have on the functioning of our democracy and the quality of life in New Jersey.

    • 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
