“The Hudson County Democratic Organization is proud of the efforts by our party to promote a fair election that resulted in a robust turnout,” HCDO Chair Amy DeGise said in a statement.
“More importantly, we are happy to have worked bi-partisanly and collaboratively with the Republican Party and independent organizations to educate and inform voters of their rights during this election. Despite seeing many on the radical right misleadingly and disgustingly claim widespread voter fraud, it’s comforting to see that those unfounded allegations are not being spewed by party leaders in our County.”
She also thanked Hudson County GOP Chair Jose Arango, along with everyone else who worked collaboratively, during this election cycle.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Hudson County Board of Elections and the Hudson County Clerk’s Office worked diligently and innovatively to ensure this year’s general election was conducted safely and securely,” added Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise.
“I thank County Clerk E. Junior Maldonado, Deputy Superintendent John Brzozowski, Elections Clerk Michael Harper and their entire teams for their preparation and for serving as a model of efficiency for organizations throughout the country.”
In navy blue Hudson County, Joe Biden (D) defeated Donald Trump (R) by a margin of about 72 percent to 26 percent in the presidential race, with few local elections drawing much attention on their own.
Nevertheless, Jersey City Ward D Councilman Yousef Saleh maintained his seat in a blowout, while the “Education Matters” and “Together We Can” board of education slates pulled off a clean sweep in Jersey City and Bayonne, respectively.
