TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — All 80 seats are up for grabs, but Democrats are expected to keep their majority in the New Jersey General Assembly.
Turnout is expected to be light in today’s election, since the Assembly is alone at the top of the ticket for the first time in 16 years. Polls close at 8 p.m.
Democrats are expected to keep their majority because of each district’s makeup and a fundraising advantage that included help from a super political action committee.

In Ocean County John Barlett and Gerry Little, imcubants are squaring off against Jimmy Esposito and Christoper Leitner for the Freeholder seats while Scott Colabella, the current County Clerk is facing Kieran Pillon Jr.
