New Jersey will elect a new governor this year as Chris Christie heads off to make traffic problems in the wild blue yonder. The Democratic and Republican primaries are today; the general election will take place in November. The polls close in the Garden State at 8 p.m. ET, and thanks to our friends at Decision Desk HQ, you can watch the results come in live right here. Keep an eye on the Democratic race, where the favorite, Phil Murphy, is running on a markedly progressive platform for a Goldman Sachs alum.

Later on in the evening, we’ll start getting returns from Los Angeles, where voters in California’s 34th Congressional District will select someone to fill the remainder of Xavier Becerra’s term. The former 12-term congressman resigned in January to become the attorney general of California. A primary on April 4 sent the top two finishers, both Democrats, to today’s general election. The polls close at 8 p.m. PT.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
