New Jersey Gubernatorial 2017

UPDATE 10-29-17: Fixed minor parties which were still using primaries
I disabled primaries. I tried fixing them using a popular primary vote but kept getting crashes, even when going back to an electoral system.  Sorry, hopefully the bug-handling improves in later versions

  1. Excellent scenario you made there!

    As a request you should do one for Virginia, since they are having gubernatorial elections next year (yes, I do live in Virginia, in case you are wondering why) 🙂

  2. Wow, a lot of requests! I live in Washington and lived in NJ for over 30 years, so I’m familiar with the names and issues. Sure technically I could do other states, but I won’t have the insight and would just be copying information.

  3. I’ll also add that I’m updating this and the Washington states, as well as my 2020 campaign and another upcoming project I’m working on, so I don’t think I can do more states at this time. If you could send me a list of candidates, news outlets, etc. I can consider it though.

  4. Is there any possibility that you could do NJ’s 3rd Congressional Race? I know it’s a big ask but since you said you lived in NJ for awhile, I thought it would be cool to see an insight into a congressional race.
