Unlike last year, when township Democrats for Joseph Keyes, the party has decided to stay out of the contest this year.

“As Democrats, we are focused on the critical issues facing the country, and are excited about concentrating our energy on the re-election of President Obama and Senator Menendez, electing Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula to the U.S. Congress, as well as supporting Truscha Quattrone's write-in campaign for Morris County Freeholder,” said Sally Hudson, the township’s Democratic Committee chairperson.

There are other important reasons to vote in the primary. If Democtats want a choice against Mr. Hank Lyon, for 2yr term, they'll write in Truscha Quatrone in the row right below Joe Singh. Trusha intended to run against Hank, but the paperwork was wrong. She only needs 100 write-in votes to be put on the general election ballot. Republicans who want to change the GOP platform could vote for the Ron Paul delegates, after they vote for the presidential candidate of their choice. The Paul delegates will help influence the Republican Party at the National Convention by focusing on the following platform: 1 Repeal Obamacare 2) Follow the U.S. Constitution instead of U.N. or NATO 3) Audit the Federal Reserve 4) Cut spending and deficits 5) Refuce the size and scope of the Federal Government and return power to The States 6) Strong national defense/protect our borders 7) American aid and defense before foreign aid and defending foreign borders
