Here are the unofficial results of New Jersey governor’s election held on Tuesday, Nov. 2, pitting Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy against Republican challenger Jack Ciattarelli.
Murphy is seeking his second consecutive four-year term, hoping to become the first Democratic New Jersey governor in 44 years to win re-election, while Ciattarelli is hoping to bring the GOP back into power in the state’s top executive office.
In recent polling among registered voters, Murphy was holding a 9-point lead over his opponent, a former state Assemblyman. Earlier public-opinion polls showed the governor carrying hefty double-digit leads, but the race has narrowed in recent weeks — and was very tight as of 10 p.m. Tuesday, with about half of the state’s voting districts reporting their results.
Three independent candidates were also on the ballot: Madelyn Hoffman, Joanne Kuniansky and Gregg Mele.
The results below, compiled by the Associated Press, will be updated throughout the night, so please check back later or refresh the page to see the latest tallies. The numbers will be updated overnight and during the upcoming days as mail-in ballots and provisional ballots are counted.
