Welcome to New Jersey on Ballotpedia!


New Jersey borders New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware and the Atlantic Ocean. New Jersey’s Constitution of 1947 established the government of New Jersey. It comprises three branches: the executive, headed by the Governor of New Jersey; the legislative (consisting of the bicameral New Jersey State Legislature, consisting of the General Assembly and Senate); and judicial, headed by the New Jersey Supreme Court.

New Jersey has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of 12 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 80 members of the New Jersey General Assembly and 40 members of the New Jersey State Senate.
