HOW DO PRIMARIES WORK IN NEW JERSEY?
- Primaries are state-level and local-level elections that take place prior to a general election.
- A primary election is an election in which registered voters select a candidate that they believe should be a political party's candidate for elected office to run in the general election. They are also used to choose convention delegates and party leaders. New Jersey utilizes a semi-closed primary process, in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is generally limited to registered party members.
- Unaffiliated voters can register as party members at the polls on primary election day by voting either the Democrat or Republican party primary ballot. Otherwise, a voter may indicate their party preference by updating their voter registration
