TRENTON, N.J. — The polls will open across New Jersey at 6 a.m., Tuesday and stay open until 8 p.m. You must be registered to vote. You can check online to confirm your registration and your polling place.
Primary voting will be underway in six states on Tuesday. The polls will close first in New Jersey, which could have been the last state Hillary Clinton needed to seal the deal on her delegate count. But the Associated Press is now reporting that Clinton has secured enough delegate commitments to become the presumptive party nominee, making history as the first woman at the top of a ticket for a major political party.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders still needs 816 delegates. But Sanders is not backing down. He has pledged to push on until the Democratic convention in Philadelphia in late July. This weekend, Sanders chided the media for counting superdelegates.
"Hillary Clinton will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to win the democratic nomination at the end of the nominating process,” said Sen. Sanders on Saturday in Los Angeles, "The Democratic National Convention will be a contested convention.”
Polls show Clinton ahead among New Jersey voters. Clinton topped Sanders 61-34 in the latest poll by CBS News and YouGov, an online polling organization.
Donald Trump has already locked up the number of delegates needed win the Republican nomination.
