Help Princeton Democrats get out the vote! You don't need any campaign experience... just a little enthusiasm and an hour or two to spare.
Princeton turnout is key to putting Marie Corfield over the top this year for the LD-16 NJ Assembly. She only lost by only about 500 votes last fall. Let's catapult her to victory and knock out Tea Party Republican Donna Simon. We need a Democratic voice from our legislative district in Trenton!
There are also important Princeton Council races, 3 school board seats, and ballot questions including #2 which would override the Christie veto and raise the NJ minimum wage.
