Hoboken Election Results – Mayor Dawn Zimmer and City Council Sweep – Kids First Sweeps BOE

Yesterday there was an election in Hoboken for the office of Mayor, 3 City Council at Large seats, 3 Board of Education seats and the Public Question #1 on whether or no to adopt vacancy decontrol (yes vote) or leave rent control in tact (no vote). The unofficial results are as follows. Official results are expected on Friday when provisional ballots are counted:

The Dawn Zimmer team of  David Mello, Ravi Bhalla and James Doyle also swept in the three at Large City Council seats by a comfortable margin of 1,500 votes.  Mayor Dawn Zimmer will now have a working 5-4 majority for at least two years on the City Council.

Rent Control Question is still up in the air….

Update 11/06/2013 5pm: Finally the vote on Public Question 1 initially had the No votes ahead of Yes on the Hudson County Elections website. These numbers did not include all 40 precincts or provisional. There was an erroneous count posted by NJ.com that had the yes votes ahead but that has been later reversed.

Update 11/06/2013 3:55pm:  According to a City of Hoboken source the current count actually has the No votes up by 50-60. The initial numbers given to NJ.com which was my source had three voting precincts where the numbers were either transposed or improperly counted. This is potentially good news for tenant advocates and bad news for vacancy decontrol advocates. Again this numbers are informational only. The final results won’t likely be until Friday when the provisional ballots are tallied.

  1. So, what happened to the rent control votes between last night and the results you & nj.com/HR have reported? Hudson County Bd of Elections still has the 4,964 no to 4,906 yes tally at 39 of 40 districts posted on "unofficial" results website.

  2. The Hudson County Numbers were missing one precinct. I got the numbers from NJ.com that include everything but provisional ballots. The missing precinct must have been heavily yes votes or additional absentees with a yes vote must have come in.

  3. Are you sure that's right? How can the 'no' votes have gone down from the 4,964 posted on the county clerk's office?

  4. Yes. The Hudson County Clerk's number n the live election site are incomplete. I got these numbers from NJ.com who likely called the clerks' office directly to get the numbers.

  5. Man this thing is flip flopping more than Perry Klaussen of Hoboken 411 (Beth Mason's mercenary smear blog)
