Following N.J.S.A. 40:45-8(a), candidates for Mayor or Council at Large must obtain petitions equal to 1% of the total number of registered voters in the municipality, and candidates for Ward Council must obtain petitions equal to 1% of the total number of registered voters in the Ward.

Requirements for Petition signatories
Following N.J.S.A. 40:45-8(a), only registered voters who reside in Jersey City can sign petitions for a City-wide municipal office such as Mayor and Council at Large.
Following N.J.S.A. 40:45-9(b), a registered voter can only sign the petition of the candidate seeking the Ward Council seat of the Ward in which that registered voter resides. For example, a resident of Ward A cannot sign the petition of a candidate seeking to run for the Ward B Council seat; he or she can only sign a petition for someone seeking the Ward A Council seat.
A registered voter can only sign one (1) petition for a Mayoral candidate, three (3) petitions for Council at Large candidates, and one (1) petition for a Ward Council candidate.
If a voter signs more than the specified number of petitions, then the Clerk’s Office will only certify the petitions of the first candidate to file. For example, if a voter signs a petition for two different candidates for Mayor, Candidate A & Candidate B, and Candidate B files his petitions for Mayor before Candidate A, then the voter’s petition for Candidate B will be counted, and the voter’s petition for Candidate A will be discarded.

Let’s end the cannabis taboo!
I’m excited to be part of this Soap & Smoke event in the Heights to help end the taboo and stigma around cannabis. Join me for a fun, hands-on experience to learn about the art of soap making and body scrubs while incorporating natural herbs.
Last month, Jersey City passed its legal marijuana ordinance, establishing six classes of licensed cannabis businesses to operate. While on the cusp of a new industry in our city, we must continue to educate folks on the history of the drug war, and its devastating impacts on low-income communities of color.
