Election Day

The polls open in five-and-a-half hours. Do you know where your polling station is?

Depending on where you live, you could be voting at the Suzanne Patterson Center (Borough District 7), Trinity Church (Borough District 1), Princeton Engine Company #1 Firehouse (Borough District 2), Icahn Lab (Township District 12) or the Riverside School (Township District 3).

With New Jersey holding one of the nation's only two governor's races this year, the Garden State will be a center of attention for this off-year Election Day. The race appears to be tight: A Quinnipiac University poll released yesterday found Chris Christie (R) only two points ahead of Gov. Jon Corzine (D), within the poll's margin of error. In addition to the future resident of Drumthwacket, there is a state-wide bond issue on open space on the ballot, and for those voting in the Borough, Princeton Borough Council seats.

The polls will be open until 8 p.m. Further information on voting for on-campus residents can be found here.
