The Electoral system of New Jersey

The term electoral system can refer to the method by which elections are conducted (e.g., whether officials are elected in single-winner versus multi-winner systems) or the method by which votes are tallied to determine the outcome of an election (e.g., plurality systems, majority systems, ranked-choice voting systems, etc.). In the United States, most federal and state-level officials are elected via plurality vote in single-winner contests, although some jurisdictions (e.g., cities, school boards, etc.) employ alternative electoral systems.

HIGHLIGHTS

·  In New Jersey, state representatives are elected via plurality vote in multi-winner contests. Two representatives are elected from each of the 40 state election districts. State senators are elected via plurality vote in single-winner contests from the same districts.

·  The governor and lieutenant governor are elected via plurality vote in single-winner contests. United States Representatives and Senators are elected in the same way.
