Here's your daily look at 5 stories we're following:

1. N.J. primary: New Jersey voters cast their ballots in the state's primary election today. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., and key races include several South Jersey Congressional seats.

2. Katz plane crash investigation, services: Authorities are continuing to probe the weekend jet crash that killed seven people, including Lewis Katz, an owner of the Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com. Investigators have recovered the cockpit voice and flight data recorders, which will be sent to a D.C. laboratory today for analysis. Memorial services for the victims are scheduled throughout the rest of the week, beginning this afternoon.

3. Pa. gambling: A Pennsylvania Senate hearing today will consider the future of the state's casino industry.

4. Camden police: The new countywide Camden police force graduates its newest class of officers today, and Gov. Chris Christie will be in Camden for an event about reducing crime in the city.

5. I-495 bridge closure: The Interstate 495 bridge over the Christina River in Wilmington -- which carries about 90,000 vehicles a day -- is closed due to tilting support columns. The emergency closure means tens of thousands of motorists will be indefinitely diverted to the heavily traveled Interstate 95, disrupting traffic throughout the Mid-Atlantic.
