“Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting,” Franklin D. Roosevelt once said.

By this logic, keeping the right to vote means we must exercise it. As it happens, we have the opportunity to do that June 6.

Tuesday, June 6 is New Jersey’s primary election, when voters will select the Republican and Democratic nominees for Governor, state Senate and Assembly, as well as numerous local offices.

The news website NJ Spotlight has a full page of news and links on the different candidates and their positions. So take some time to brush up on where the candidates stand, and make sure you get out and vote. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
