Primary Debates

There were two Republican debates and two Democratic debates for the candidates who took public funding (for whom it is a requirement) and those who did not take public funding but chose to debate anyway.

NJ Voting Info: Party Affiliation

New Jersey has a closed primary system, which means that only voters affiliated with a major party (Democratic or Republican) may vote in that party's primary election.

When you register to vote, you may choose to affiliate with a party at that time, or you may choose to remain unaffiliated. Unaffiliated voters may vote in the general election but not in a primary unless they declare their affiliation.

To declare or change a party affiliation, a Political Party Affiliation Declaration Form must be sent to the Commissioner of Registration for the county in which you’re registered, or you may submit a voter registration form to update your registration.

  • Unaffiliated voters have until the day of the primary election to declare an affiliation (and can do so at their polling place).
  • Affiliated voters who want to change their party affiliation must send the form by no later than 55 days before the election
