NEW JERSEY — The General Election is Tuesday, Nov. 5. Polls are open across the Garden State from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. this Election Day.

It is not a federal holiday, but Election Day is a state holiday in New Jersey.  Since Election Day is not a federal holiday, there will be mail delivery. However, all state offices and courts will be closed, and the Division of Motor Vehicles and Inspection stations will also not open. The Plainfield Public Schools District will also be closed.
