Official 2014 Primary Results

Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi has posted official results of the June primary, but to save you from having to scroll through all the results, here are the numbers in the Democratic contests:
First Ward
Diane Toliver, 510 (63.51 percent)
Emmett Swan, :206 (25.65 percent)
Siddeeq El-Amin, 87 (10.83 percent)

Second & Third Ward at-large
Charles Eke, 1,017 (46.89 percent)
Rebecca Williams, 1,151 (53.07 percent)

Third Ward
Gloria Taylor, 568 (50.85 percent)
Charles McRae, 515 (46.11 percent)
Rasheed Abdul-Haqq, 34 (3.04 percent)

No Republican filed in the First Ward. For the Second & Third Ward at-large seat, Randy Bullock got 90 votes and for the Third Ward seat, Charles A. Jones Jr. got 30 votes. The Democratic winners will face the Republicans in those wards in the Nov. 4 general election. 

Speaking of elections, the Tuesday (June 10) mayoral run-off  in Trenton pits Eric Jackson against Paul Perez and the winner will take office on July 1. Jackson is on unpaid leave as Plainfield's director of Public Works & Urban Development, with City Administrator Rick Smiley holding the additional post in acting capacity.

  1. What is missing is the percentage of eligible (registered Democrats) voters in the wards plus number unaffiliated. That will give a true indication of public concern.
