TRENTON - All 120 seats in the state Legislature are up for grabs in Tuesday's election, which means there could be a swing in control in both the General Assembly and the state Senate.

Democrats currently control both houses, with a wider margin in the General Assembly.

In most districts, incumbents generally hold on to their seats, but there are some exceptions.

Many Republicans have said they hope a big voter turnout of supporters for Gov. Chris Christie will help them take over some legislative seats.

To gain the majority, Republicans would need to pick up five seats in the Senate and nine seats in the Assembly.
