ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL - All right. Finally. We are here. Election Day. If you live under a rock, and somehow still received this email, let's get you updated. Phil Murphy is running against Kim Guadagno for governor. Also, all 120 seats in the state Legislature are up for grabs. There are also candidates on the ballot for freeholder, mayor, council, and school board. There are also two ballot questions; one seeking approval to upgrade antiquated libraries, the other to ensure environmental settlements go to the towns where pollution occurred, not the general treasury. Polls are open until 8 p.m. Weather is downright perfect. Now, you are officially an educated voter. No excuses. Go vote. And bring money if there is a bake sale at your polling place.

ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL - It's one thing when cash-strapped New Jersey residents refrain from donating $1 to the Gubernatorial Election Fund on their tax returns, but it's an entirely different matter when the two leading candidates for governor fail to check off that little box for publicly-funded elections. NJ.com reports that Phil Murphy, who received $9.3 million in matching funds from the public supported program, abstained from the $1 donation. So did Kim Guadagno, before accepting $3.3 million. The Murphy campaign called the abstention an "oversight," while Team Guadagno wasn't talking. It's all moot tomorrow, when the polls close promptly at 8 p.m.

BASKING RIDGE - Nothing is more titillating than writing about home insurance, so here we go: Basking Ridge apparently is the second cheapest town in the entire nation for home insurance, at just $485 a year, NJ 101.5 reports. That's because all those underwriters look at a bunch of factors, like construction costs, amount of claims, credit scores, crime, etc. On the flip side, and of no great surprise to anyone, Atlantic City has the most expensive insurance rates in the state, at an average of $1,431 per year - more than $200 above the national average. One factor is because shore towns have a greater chance of storm exposure. Another unproven theory: thieves could burglarize your home and then swim to England with the bounty.

RUNNEMEDE - There are still plenty of wackos out there, with the story of a two-inch sewing needle found inside a little girl's Tootsie Roll. Luckily, the girl had not bitten into the Halloween candy when it was discovered. Her mom was obviously furious, as the girl had only gone to doors in the neighborhood. The story has been shared on Facebook 1,800 times or so, to date, as the family is urging all their neighbors to throw out the Tootsie Rolls. Cops X-rayed the girl's bounty, fortunately not finding anything else.
