WESTFIELD, NJ — It might not be the most contentious contest residents cast votes in this month, but it could be the spookiest.

Polling has started for the town’s “Haunt Your House” home decorating contest being held as part of Westfield’s third annual AddamsFest celebrations, honoring Addams Family creator Charles Addams — a Westfield native.

The public is invited to hit the streets and choose their top four choices out of 51 homes, which have been decked out in the annual contest, AddamsFest organizers wrote on their website hosting the contest “Voting Booth.”
