Live Results: New Jersey 10th Congressional District Special Primary

The death of Democratic Rep. Donald Payne Jr. in April created a vacancy in New Jersey's 10th congressional district. Party nominees will be chosen Tuesday, with a special general election on September 18.

The winner of the special election will serve through the end of the year.

Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern.

Introducing the 2024 Presidential Election Simulator

The 2024 Presidential Election Simulator and related statistics are now available on 270toWin. You can conduct individual simulated elections on your own or review the results of 25,000 simulations conducted each morning. 

The simulator is largely based on a data-driven presidential model created by JHK forecasts.

The model encompasses both fundamentals and polling. It also accounts for uncertainty, which will decrease as the election draws closer. Since we are still over 100 days from the election, that uncertainty means that any single simulation might produce a result that seems unrealistic.

Electoral Maps: Compare the Consensus Forecast to Polling

Compare the expert consensus forecast with a map based exclusively on polling.  

The major difference is that the expert forecast is forward looking (i.e., the election is in November), while the polling map is more of a look at "if the election was today." 

As the election draws near, the two maps should converge. State-level polling will become more frequent, and will also get greater weighting in the expert forecasts.
