Welcome to Election Day 2016

It’s Election Day in the great Garden State and in America, where voters go to the polls to select the successor to President Barack Obama.

PolitickerNJ reporters will be in the field all day and into the night to bring you the latest from the campaign trail. We will pay particular attention today to CD5, where veteran incumbent U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett hopes to fend off Democratic challenger Josh Gottheimer in one of the most-watched contests in the country.

Good luck to all the candidates today, be safe, and as they say in prizefighting – may the best person win. Welcome to Election Day 2016
