The voter turnout for the 2014 primary elections in Cape May County, NJ, for both Republican and Democratic candidates, was anemic at best and many of those running were unopposed. Of the 69,038 voters registered in the county, only 5,865 voted or 8.50 %. So if you are unhappy with the results, you know who to blame.
Democratic Senator Cory Booker will face the Republican candidate, Jeff Bell, in the fall elections, while Republican Congressman Frank LoBiondo will go against Williams Hughes, Jr.
