BURLINGTON COUNTY, NJ – As predicted, not a whole lot of people attended the August 13th Primary Election for the New Jersey Senate Seat.

Of the 287,741 registered voters in Burlington County, only 8.64% came out to vote, just 24,859 people.

Of those, 7,320 voters were Republicans and 17,539 voters were Democrat.

For the Republican side, Steven M. Lonegan was the winner with 83% of the vote.  He was the predicted winner as our late Senator Lautenberg’s family supported Lonegan in his run.

For the Democrat side, Cory Booker is the winner with 68% of the vote.  We can infer that he had a smaller percentage as there are more choices of Democrats (4) than there were Republicans (2).

The special election to elect a new senator will take place on October 16th, 2013 and the winner’s term will end on January 3rd, 2015.

For Chesterfield Township Residents, your polling place is Chesterfield Fire House.
