The races marked with asterisks (*) before the title did not have all districts respond. Monmouth County Election spokesperson Laura Kirkpatrick said Nov. 8 Spring Lake Heights and Freehold Township did not send in ballot cartridges, likely as a mistake, and are the reason why Monmouth County only had 456 districts respond out of 458. Kirkpatrick said the mistake did not appear to be intentional and it will likely not compromise the integrity of ballot information. Kirkpatrick said the county will obtain a court order Nov. 9 to get back the missing cartridges and finalize the county’s total voter results.

RELATED: Results for Ocean County elections

Sheriff: Locally, Monmouth County is holding an election for sheriff.

Republican Shaun Golden, the current Monmouth County Sheriff, is running for re-election against Democrat Jeff Cantor.

Certain counties are holding elections for borough council members, council members-at-large, freeholders, mayors, and Board of Education members.

On every ballot in New Jersey, there are two questions.

Issue Questions: There are two. Both questions require a “yes” or no” answer.

The first question asks voters whether gambling should expand outside of Atlantic City and allow two casinos to be built in the northern region of the state.

The second question asks voters to confirm money from the state’s recent gas tax, which tacked on a 23-cent tax to every gallon, goes to transportation projects.
