Voters will go to the polls in the mid-term election, Tuesday, Nov. 6, to select their representatives for federal and county posts.

The highest office up for grabs is in the U.S. Senate. Incumbent Democrat Bob Menendez is facing a challenge from Republican Bob Hugin. Voters will also have a choice between Democrat Jeff Van Drew and Republican Seth Grossman, who are vying to fill retiring U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo’s seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Locally, residents will chose their candidates for Atlantic County freeholer-at-large and District 2 freeholder. In District 2, Ventnor resident Maureen Leidy, a Democrat, is challenging Republican incumbent Maureen Kern of Somers Point. Republican incumbent Frank Formica of Linwood is being challenged by Democrat Celeste Fernandez of Egg Harbor Township for the at-large seat in county government.

Voters will also vote on a public question to bond $500 million, which would be used to provide grants to school districts, vocational-technical schools and county colleges to expand facilities, increase career education programs, upgrade school security and for school district water infrastructure projects.
