Polls across New Jersey close in Special Senate Election

Posted: Updated:

Polls have closed in the special election for U.S. Senate in New Jersey.

Earlier today, South Jersey residents made sure to cast their votes for their choice of Senate candidates. Local residents say voting is an important civic duty.

Someone new will be packing up and heading to Washington to fill the Senate seat, but who that someone will be is still unknown.

The seat of the late Senator Frank Lautenberg will be filled by either Democrat Cory Booker or Republican Steve Lonegan.

"I feel that having Mr. Booker in office will help us get a contract." Jeannine Brown is a New Jersey Transit employee. She voted for Booker in hopes of a brighter future for her family.

Bill Butler voted for Lonegan, who he believes would be able to bring sanity back to Washington. "It's getting a little out of hand. The Government has been shut down for two weeks."

But some voters, young and old say it doesn't matter who you want to win, just get out and vote.

Chen Brown says one vote could be a game changer when the results are counted. "Just go out and vote. It makes a difference even if you don't think it does."

The polling places will stay open until 8:00 P.M. Wednesday.
