  • Be 21 years of age or older.
  • Obtain 100 signatures via petition and submit the signatures to the New Jersey Secretary of State[5].
  • Disclose any criminal convictions[6].

Impact of redistricting

This is the final map as approved by the New Jersey redistricting commission. These districts will be in place until 2020.
See also: Redistricting in New Jersey

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, New Jersey's population increased from 8,414,350 to 8,791,894 between 2000 and 2010.[7]

The New Jersey Redistricting Commission is responsible for redistricting. This is one of 11 commissions nationwide that is responsible for redistricting. This redistricting commission is comprised of 10 members, chosen by the following:

If a plan is not in place, the New Jersey Supreme Court selects an 11th member. For the third consecutive decade, Rutgers professor Alan Rosenthal was chosen as the tie-breaking member. Rosenthal was unable to get the commission to agree on a compromise map and therefore had to cast a tie-breaking vote. He ultimately went with the Democrats' map, stating that it "reflected the current distribution of partisan preferences in New Jersey."[8]

Among the changes to the map:[9]

  • Somerset County would now be split among four districts. Before, it was in two.
  • The new 12th district included parts of Monmouth, Ocean, Burlington and Middlesex counties.
