Previous Council Election Results
I’ve been searching for previous Hoboken City Council election results from various places online (like the city website & the Reporter) as well as the Hudson County Clerks office. It would be nice to have all this information in one place for easy access.
Being relatively new to Hoboken politics, I’m assuming the at-large council gets elected along with the Mayor, and the six wards are happening this year. And other special elections take place if someone leaves office for some reason. Please confirm or correct me if I’m wrong.
Here’s the link from the May 11, 2003 Reporter previewing the last elections.
And a link for the results from the May 18, 2003 Reporter.
2003 Wards 1-6 Results:
I noticed this anomaly: Why were some council elections held at the same time as the general election in November, and others in May? The Hudson County records date back to 2001, and I found results for three (ward) council seats. Can someone please fill in the historical details?
3rd Ward: November 2003 (4068 eligible voters, 1513 ballots cast)
4th Ward: November 2001 (4183 eligible voters, 1824 ballots cast)
6th Ward: November 2001 (3863 eligible voters, 1383 ballots cast)
Interesting side-article. Scott Delea had previously mentioned how some people were “getting paid off” to vote for particular candidates.
