    More people could be heading to the polls in the Garden State in November.

    New Jersey voter registration is up compared to a year ago.

    The state Elections Division says more than 5.27 million residents are registered to vote in the Nov. 2 general election. That's up from 5.22 million in 2009, when Republican Chris Christie was elected Governor.

    Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans, despite some losses on the Democratic side. Republicans gained 10,000 voters. Nearly half of the voters, 2.44 million, are unaffiliated.

    On Nov. 2 voters will elect members of the House of Representatives, county and local lawmakers and decide on a Constitutional Amendment ballot question, restricting the use and access to the state's wage-based employee benefit funds.
