New Jersey awaits election results as polls close for 2022 election

By David Wildstein, November 08 2022 8:00 pm

It’s 8 PM and the polls are closed in New Jersey.

Now it’s up to election officials in the state’s 21 counties to count the votes.

As part of a partnership with Decision Desk HQ and with the support of the New Jersey Education Association, the New Jersey Globe will bring you up-to-the-minute elections results for Congress, and in Bergen, Burlington, Cumberland, Gloucester, Somerset and Passaic counties.  Click HERE to view results after the polls close at 8 PM.

At stake this year are twelve congressional seats,  61  races for countywide office – including contests for control of county government in Gloucester and Cumberland – as well as hundreds of contests for municipal offices in partisan and non-partisan elections.

Four Democrats congressmen are locked in possibly competitive races for re-election: Tom Malinowski (D-Ringoes) faces former Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr. in the 7th district; Andy Kim (D-Moorestown) is up against businessman Bob Healey in the 3rd; Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) is being challenged by former investment banker Frank Pallotta in the 5th; and in the 11th, Mikie Sherrill (D-Montclair) is opposed by Paul DeGroot, a former Assistant Passaic County Prosecutor.

In addition to Gloucester and Cumberland, county races in Bergen, Burlington, Passaic and Somerset are worth watching.  All are Democratic counties, but a GOP win could set up a control election in 2023.

Vote-by-mail ballots postmarked by 8 PM tonight will be counted as long as they are delivered to the county election board by close of business on Monday.
