The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger reports that "Voter turnout in today's primary elections has been relatively light, and problem free, so far, according to elections officials across New Jersey."
"There's nothing to update. In 25 years that I've been doing this, I think this is the one of the slowest elections I've seen," one election official told the paper.
Polling has shown Republican former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie, seen as the more moderate candidate, as the favorite over Bogota (Bergen County) Mayor Steve Lonegan, an orthodox conservative with an outside chance of upending Christie.
Incumbent Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine is facing just token opposition.
Republicans like their chances in the fall against Corzine, and see this seat as a top target.
Polls close tonight at 8.
