Polling Changes For Aug. 13 Special Election
● By Anonymous
District 5 voters take note: Your polling station for the Aug. 13 special primary election has moved from Nativity Church to the Midland Park Fire House on Witte Drive. This is a one time change for the August election only.
The special primary election is to select candidates fill the US Senate seat of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who passed away on June 3 at the age of 89. The vote to fill the seat will take place on Oct. 16, at which time District 5 voting will return to Nativity.
Four Democrats and two Republicans are on the primary ballot. Democrats will choose between Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, and U.S. Reps. Frank Pallone and Rush Holt. Republicans have the option of conservative activist Steve Lonegan and doctor Alieta Eck.
