Salem Democrats push county committee to 2022

Salem County Democrats are postponing county committee elections for two years, with all district leaders remaining in office until that time.

That means county committee elected in 2018 will retroactively get four-year terms, and then resume two-year terms in 2022.

Steven Caltabiano, the county chairman, says the move follows the current recommendations of the Democratic State Committee to follow social distancing guidelines.

Most counties have pushed county committee elections beyond this June, but there are some exceptions.

Citing by-laws challengers, Monmouth County Democrats are keeping their county elections this year.

Essex Democrats, Middlesex Democrats, Middlesex Republicans, Bergen Democrats, Bergen Republicans, Morris Democrats, Morris Republicans, Cape May Democrats, Hudson Republicans, Burlington Republicans, Atlantic Democrats, and Bayonne Democrats have moved their county committee elections to 2021.

Essex will run for a three-year term in 2021 and resume two-year terms in 2024.

Hunterdon Democrats and Salem Democrats have moved it to 2022.
