Just a quick heads up for Dems who live in LD-23: There are no Dems on the ballot for Assembly in the 23rd, but there are two candidates you can write in:
Mary Beth Maciag & Maria Rodriguez
They’re running against GOP incumbents John DiMaio and Erik Peterson. Mary Beth Maciag’s from Hackettstown and Maria Rodriguez is from Bridgewater. (Not to be confused with GOP Asw Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, who reps the 8th District).
LD23 has more Rs than Ds, by a wide margin, but unaffiliated voters outnumber both. So a vibrant campaign behind Maciag and Rodriguez, once your write-in puts them on the November ballot, forces the GOP to spend in a district where they’d rather not and allows Maciag and Rodriguez to make their best case for change not only with Dems but the District’s 76,929 unaffiliated voters.
