TRENTON - Polls have closed on New Jersey's primary elections for Assembly races across the state.

Registered Democrats and Republicans went to the polls Tuesday, though only five of the state's 40 districts were contested.

Each district sends two people to the Assembly and candidates usually run together as a ticket. Candidates are vying for a chance to be on the general election ballot for the Nov. 3 contest.

Experts expected turnout to be low, and the poor weather traditionally keeps voters away from the polls. They also said turnout could be lower than usual since the Assembly alone is at the top of the ticket.

Sixteen years ago was the last time voters saw this at the polls. Turnout was just 6 percent then.
