Few voters take part in West New York early voting

Sires vs. Cirillo is one of the key races to watch on Tuesday

By David Wildstein, May 08 2023 10:20 am

About 5% of registered voters in West New York – 1,180- cast their ballots during in-person early voting on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.   That number mirrors the 5% of voters whose vote-by-mail ballots arrived at the Hudson County Board of Elections on Friday.
The big day for early voting was on Friday when 515 voters visited two early voting centers in Hudson County town.  Another 427 voters came in on Saturday and 238 on Sunday.

West New York has turned out to be one of the most competitive races in the state for tomorrow’s non—partisan municipal election.   Albio Sires, a former nine-term congressman, is seeking to return to his mayoral post from 1995 to 2006.   He faces Cosmo Cirillo, West New York town commissioner who is half his age.

The new mayor will come from the slate winning at least three of the five seats on Tuesday.

Running the Sires slate are incumbent Victor Barrera, school board president Adam Parkinson, school board member Marielka Diaz, and Marcos Arroyo, the Republican nominee for Congress last year to succeed Sires.    Cirillo’s ticket includes incumbent Margarita Guzman, Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez, and newcomers Walter Lopez and Hiram Gonzalez.
