TRENTON - New Jersey voters will head to the polls Tuesday to decide whether to give Gov. Chris Christie another term in office or to give Democratic challenger state Sen. Barbara Buono a try.

Buono continues to trail by a significant margin in the polls, but the only numbers that count will come Tuesday night.

Neither candidate has given up the fight yet, and both kept full schedules on the day before the election.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez joined Christie on his bus tour Monday, starting at a diner in Nutley and ending with a campaign rally in Union City.

The governor also rolled into Freehold in Monmouth County and met with a packed house of volunteers and party loyalists.

After breakfast with Bergen County Democrats, Buono visited a phone bank in New Brunswick and attended a rally in Union Township.

A crew of young staffers with the Buono campaign were helping raise awareness from much-quieter headquarters in New Brunswick. "We're going to do everything in our power to ensure that people know there's an election and that they ought to vote on Nov. 5," Buono says.

Experts say turnout could be a big factor tomorrow, since many voters may decide to stay home if they think Christie is far enough ahead.

The latest Monmouth University poll shows Gov. Christie holding a 20-point lead over his challenger. A Rutgers/Eagleton poll out today shows Christie with a massive 36-point lead over Buono.

Polls open at 6 a.m. Tuesday.
