TRENTON -

Election Day seems to be running smoothly in New Jersey.

Division of Elections spokeswoman Jennifer Stringfellow says no major issues were reported as of early Tuesday night. The polls closed at 8 p.m.

Voters in New Jersey were choosing a replacement for Republican Gov. Chris Christie, voting for the entire state Legislature and are also voting on two ballot questions.

Attorney General Christopher Porrino says that about 250 lawyers were assigned throughout the state to assist county election officials in any voting-related legal issues.

Porrino noted that it's a criminal offense to solicit voters within the 100-feet zone of polling sites.

Anyone can call 1-877-NJVOTER to report problems or concerns at polling places.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
