​In Readington, the election of Township Committee members is usually decided in the June Republican Primary. The winners of this primary often run unopposed in November or against Democrats, who are the minority party locally.  Since the primary is often won or lost by a handful of votes, your vote really matters.    If you want to have a voice in who sits on our Township Committee by voting in the Republican primary, you must be registered to vote as a Republican, or be Unaffiliated.
