Some towns holding fire district elections today

By David Wildstein, February 18 2023 6:00 am

Good morning, New Jersey  It’s Election Day, again.

Voters in roughly two-dozen New Jersey municipalities go to the polls today for fire district elections where some places have contested races for fire commissioner and referendums to approve fire district budgets.

These are typically low-turnout elections.  Most fire districts open the polls from 2 PM to 9 PM.

The best race may be in Piscataway, where Middlesex County Clerk Nancy Pinkin has remailed vote-by-mail ballots for a contested election for Piscataway fire commissioner on Saturday after originally telling voters to vote for one candidate when two seats were up.

Two incumbents, John Buchek and Arthur Hayducka, face a challenge from William Lemire for two of five seats up this year on the township’s District 1 Fire Commission.

Fire commissioner elections are also scheduled for: Brick, Bridgewater, Burlington, Chesterfield,  East Brunswick, Franklin, Hanover, Howell, Jackson, Little Egg Harbor, Lakewood, Lower, Manasquan, Monroe, Montgomery, Montville, Moorestown,  Neptune, Parsippany, Toms River, Washington, and Woodbridge.
