SADDLE BROOK, NJ - Voting for the Democratic and Republican primaries in New Jersey has ended, and votes are being counted for three Council seats on both tickets in Saddle Brook.

Council President Andrew Cimiluca headlines the Democratic candidates, which also include council members Florence Mazzer and David Gierek.

Republicans Richard Garcia, George Cedeno, Jr. and Ralph DeJulia are also running for the council seats.

In the 9th Congressional District, long-time incumbent Bill Pascrell, Jr. faces two incumbent challengers in Zinovia Spezakis and Alpaslan "Alp" Basaran.

Pascrell, 83, underwent a successful heart procedure on Sunday, according to a statement from his office.

He is in his twelfth term as elected Congressman, first in New Jersey's 8th district, then the 9th after the district was reconfigured and renumbered.

Of six Democratic candidates and two Republican candidates, two will become members of the Board of Chosen Freeholders.

Vice Chairwoman Joan M. Voss is up for reelection, and Ridgewood Mayor Ramon Hache has his name on the ballot, as do Daniel Kim, Laura Occhipinti, Edmund Fanning and Patricia Henry on the Democratic ballot.

Republicans Ronald Kistner and Simone Tsigounis will also seek the two seats of the Board.

In the Senate race, incumbent, and former presidential-hopeful Cory Booker faces challenger Lawrence Hamm, an activist from Newark.

Hamm has been a relentless voice for civil rights since high school, when he spearheaded a student takeover of a local hotel to demand better facilities and an end to a teacher's strike.

That display of leadership earned him an appointment to the Newark Board of Education, making him the youngest school board member in the United States at the age of 17.
