The current version of the [[New Jersey Constitution]] was adopted in 1947. It provides for a [[bicameral]] Legislature consisting of a Senate of 40 members and an General Assembly of 80 members. Each of the 40 legislative districts elects one Senator and two Assembly members. Assembly members are elected by the people for a two-year term in all odd-numbered years; Senators are elected in the years ending in 1, 3, and 7 and thus serve either four or two year terms.

New Jersey is one of only five states that elects its state officials in odd numbered years (The others are [[Kentucky]], [[Louisiana]], [[Mississippi]], and [[Virginia]]).  New Jersey holds elections for these offices every 4 years in the years following Presidential election years. Thus, the last year when New Jersey elected a Governor was 2005; the next gubernatorial election will occur in 2009, with future gubernatorial elections to take place in 2013, 2017, 2021, etc.
