Population changes enumerated in the 2010 Census results are the basis for legislative redistricting changes, both on the State and Federal levels throughout the country. New Jersey is one of the first states to complete its Legislative redistricting process. The early completion is necessitated by the 2011 election in which the entire New Jersey Legislature is on the ballot.

On April 3, 2011 the new redistricting map designating the Legislative districts for the next ten years was approved. The Legislature continues to be divided into 40 districts with approximately 220,000 people residing in each. In order to arrive at correct population allowances, a special redistricting commission with representatives from both parties was appointed. After considerable deliberation, and ultimately a decision by a special master, the final map was completed.

The new map resulted in numerous changes.  A number of legislators found their hometowns in significantly different districts.  As a result, some decided to move to another town in order to seek re-election while a handful made the decision to retire from the Legislature. In order to provide all our clients with a comprehensive synopsis of these changes, MBI-GluckShaw has developed the attached Legislative Redistricting overview. This overview provides a listing of the municipalities in each new district, current representatives and changes that occurred due to redistricting.

Following the approval of the map, most legislative incumbents and perspective candidates around the state filed petitions to be on the ballot. The second attachment provides an overview of the candidates who have filed for the 2011 Primary Election. Please note that some ballots changes have and will continue to occur prior to the primary.

We hope that both of the documents will be of assistance.
