It's Primary Election Day. Whatcha gonna do?

Plainfield's special primary election day dawned drizzly and grey, which is likely to depress a turnout already expected to be low.

But it is your chance to weigh in on who should get to face off in mid-October's special general election to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the death of long-serving Sen. Frank Lautenberg.

The Democratic candidates are --
  • Cory Booker
  • Rush Holt
  • Sheila Oliver
  • Frank Pallone
On the Republican side it's --
  • Alieta Eck
  • Steve Lonegan
Candidates are listed in alphabetical order, of course.

Plainfield's regular polling stations are open until 8:00 PM this evening.

Whatcha gonna do?
