UPDATE: Polls Now Closed in Long Branch-Eatontown area

Local election winners will become clear soon


The polls are closed in the Long Branch-Eatontown area and residents are eagerly awaiting the results of the 2012 election.

People came out in droves to Long Branch City Hall on Tuesday because of the  change of polling locations throughout the city.

The parking lot of city hall was filled with police directing traffic into it as voters from 13 of Long Branch's 17 voting districts were directed to go there because of Hurricane Sandy.

The Long Branch Board of Education helped out by shuttling voters to and from Hobart Manor Kennedy Tower, Chester Arthur, Ten Pavilion and Washington Manor today.

There are no contested elections in the city this year, but residents could still cast their vote for president, congress, senate, county clerk and the board of chosen freeholders.

Eatontown residents in every district, except for districts 5 and 6, voted at the Eatontown Fire House on Broad Street today because of the hurricane's impact on other voting locations.

Four candidates are vying for two spots on the Eatontown Council. Democratic incumbent Anthony Talerico and running mate Janice Kroposky are facing off against incumbent Republican Kevin Gonzalez and running mate Edmund Fittererer.

There are also four candidates for three open spots on the Eatontown Board of Education with incumbents Robert English, Carl Lawson and Peter Siino facing off against challenger Albert Baginsky.

Voters in Tinton Falls and Eatontown can also vote on two public questions for Monmouth Regional High School that will decide the future of two facility improvement projects.
