If you are approached on your way into the polling place or challenged inside the polling place:
New Jersey prohibits electioneering, otherwise trying to influence voters, or distributing materials within the polling place or within 100 feet of the entrance to the polling place.
New Jersey law allows the candidates and other politically affiliated individuals to nominate challengers, who must be appointed by the county board.  Only one challenger for any party, candidate, or political question may be present in the polls at a time, and all challengers must wear a badge identifying the person or party for which the challenger is acting.  Challengers may not challenge voters directly, as only election officials may ask the voter questions.
