Borough voters have two open council seats up for grabs in the regular election. However, no candidates appeared on the local primary ballot for Helmetta because petitions were not filed in time in order to appear on the July 7 ballot. Preliminary results did not include any write-in Democratic or Republican candidates.
Milltown voters will have two open seats on the Borough Council in November. Democrats James Pareti and Margaret O'Donnell were running unopposed in Tuesday's primary. There were not any Republican Borough Council candidates on the primary ballot because petitions were not filed.
