For the first time in 12 years, New Jersey is choosing a governor without an incumbent in the race. It’s a critical moment for the future of the state, and it comes at a time when conversations across the political divide are becoming increasingly difficult.
That's why we launched Voting Block, a New Jersey collaborative reporting effort. The project involves several major news organizations in the state who will explore the gubernatorial election -- and political divisions -- through the eyes of one neighborhood. Each news outlet will follow a group of neighbors throughout the summer and fall as the race develops, holding events and online discussion groups.
Current reporting partners include WYNC, WHYY, NJ Spotlight, The Record of the USA Today Network and New America Media; additional reporting partners will be added this summer. Editorial components of the project are being coordinated by the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University, and audience engagement is being coordinated by Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting.
