How it Works

The New Jersey Mock Election helps students vote in the elections just like their parents will. There are methods for students to vote electronically or by paper ballot. Students will be able to see if their choice of Senator or Representative won.

Their votes will not only be tallied against their classmates, but the entire state! For many it could be their first comprehensive voting experience. Voting has closed for the year and results will be posted by the end of Nov 5, 2018.

  1. Teachers can register to have their students participate in the mock election. There are thousands of schools in New Jersey, and many with the same name, so we included the street addresses to help you pick the right one!
  2. Mock Election voting is typically available in October.
