New Jersey voters to decide 3 open congressional races

New Jersey will get at least three new members of Congress, and the delegation will include at least one woman for the first time in more than a decade.

All 12 of the state’s seats in the U.S. House will be filled as voters go to the polls Tuesday. The delegation is now made up of six Republicans and six Democrats.

In the 1st District, Democrat Donald Norcross is facing Republican Garry Cobb. This is an open seat after Democratric Congressman Rob Andrews resigned earlier this year. 

The most expensive race is the 3rd District, where Democrat Aimee Belgard faces Republican Tom MacArthur. This is an open seat since Republican Congressman Jon Runyan is not seeking re-election.

The 12th District is certain have a female House member as Republican Alieta Eck runs against Democrat Bonnie Watson Coleman. This is an open seat since Democratic Congressman Rush Holt is not seeking re-election.

Polls are open 6 a.m. until 8 p.m.
