The Oct. 16 polling is the first ever for the state and was prompted by Gov. Chris Christie's decision to hold a special primary and general election solely for the U.S. Senate seat, rather than waiting until the November general election when Christie will stand for re-election.
The two elections are estimated to cost about $25 million.
Wednesday's election pits Democratic Newark Mayor Cory Booker against Tea Party Republican Steve Lonegan, the former mayor of Bogota.
But there are a host of others vying for the seat you may have not known about. Among them:
- Stuart David Meissner, of the Alimony Reform Now party
- Antonio Nice Sabas, representing the Freedom of Choice party
- Robert DePasquale, of the Jobs For Americans party
- Eugene Martin LaVergne, of the D-R Party
- Pablo Olivera, representing Unity is Strength
- Edward C. Stackhouse Jr., of the Ed The Barber party
Polls will be open 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16.
