Welcome to GGCNJ

The political system in New Jersey is broken. Government is dominated by those with money and power and, far too often, the public is entirely shut out. The Good Government Coalition of New Jersey (GGCNJ) is a nonpartisan, grassroots group whose mission is to strengthen democracy by working with residents across our state to bring greater transparency, accountability, and participation to our state and local governments.

We deserve better ballots! Join our #BetterBallotsNJ campaign to become a campaign ambassador or to join the many organizations that have already signed our Resolution to Establish a Fair Ballot.
GGCNJ is proud to announce its 2021 Elections Endorsements and candidate database. Vote in the Primary Election by June 8th, and Don't be blinded by the Line!
