Download your NFIB/New Jersey Voter Guide

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 5, and we want to make sure that you feel prepared to make decisions that will benefit your small business when you enter the voting booth. As a member of NFIB, you have access to our exclusive Small Business Voter Guide, which outlines the candidates and initiatives that will fight for your small business in New Jersey, as well as other important voter information.

Some important points you’ll find inside:

Public Question 2: Minimum Wage Amendment    

This constitutional amendment not only sets the minimum wage level to $8.25 per hour, but also includes annual cost of living increases every year, forever, regardless of worker performance or the surrounding economic climate.

The Minimum Wage Amendment will also cost the state up to 31,000 jobs, and because the wage increase will be added to the New Jersey Constitution, future changes to the minimum wage may only be done through ballot initiative. Visit NFIB’s SaveNewJerseyJobs.com to learn more about the amendment.

NFIB’s Endorsed Candidates

NFIB’s PAC, the New Jersey SAFE Trust, endorses candidates for their commitment to supporting a stronger business climate in New Jersey. Our Small Business Voter Guide provides a listing of all endorsed candidates so that you know which candidates have earned our support. We ask you to support these candidates and also encourage your family, friends and employees to support them as well.

Polls are open Tuesday, Nov. 5, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
