WAYNE, NJ - While this result is based only on a preliminary count of ballots cast on the voting machines today, and is NOT the official result, it is projected that five of the six Wayne Town Council seats will remain in Republican hands.

Ward Five Democrat Francine Ritter is the projected winner*, unseating Lucy "Aileen" Rivera.  This would make her the lone Democrat on the Wayne Town Council.

We are still awaiting the tally of absentee and mail-in ballots from the Clerk's office and will update you when these are in.
