House Election

State significance

At least three of New Jersey's 11 House seats are considered competitive this year given strong political headwinds against Democrats because of the economy and Joe Biden's disapproval rating.

The seats held by Democratic Reps. Josh Gottheimer, Andy Kim and Tom Malinowski are being notably challenged by the GOP, with Malinowski's district made significantly less friendly for him after redistricting.

Last year, Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy only narrowly held onto his seat despite New Jersey's deep blue hue.

Counties are colored red or blue when the percent of expected vote reporting reaches a set threshold. This threshold varies by state and is based on patterns of past vote reporting and expectations about how the vote will report this year.
