Election season in South Brunswick will be quiet on the local front with no Township Council seats up for election this year, and no contested race for three open seats on the Board of Education.
Incumbent board members Daniel Boyle and Harry Delgado are both seeking another three-year term on the board, while incumbent board Vice President Deborah Taylor did not seek another term. One other candidate filed to run in the November election for the third open seat, Azra Baig, a registered nurse who is active with the Viking Athletic Club.
Here are the other races up for election on Nov. 5. For more about the candidates, click the link to visit their web sites:

Public Questions Up For Election:
STATE PUBLIC QUESTION NO. 1 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO PERMIT MONEY FROM EXISTING GAMES OF CHANCE TO SUPPORT VETERANS' ORGANIZATIONS
Do you approve amending the Constitution to allow veterans' organizations to use money collected from existing games of chance to support their organizations?
This amendment to the Constitution would allow veterans' organizations to use the money collected from existing games of chance (such as bingo, lotto or raffles) to support their organizations. At present, the Constitution allows this money to be used only for educational, charitable, patriotic, religious or public-spirited purposes. Currently, only senior citizen groups may use the money they collect from existing games of chance to support their groups.
STATE PUBLIC QUESTION NO. 2 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO SET A STATE MINIMUM WAGE WITH ANNUAL
Do you approve amending the State Constitution to set a State minimum wage rate of at least $8.25 per hour? The amendment also requires annual increases in that rate if there are annual increases in the cost of living.
This amendment to the State Constitution sets the State minimum wage at the level in effect under current law, or $8.25 per hour, whichever is more. Cost of living increases would be added each year. Also, if the federal minimum wage rate is raised above the State rate, the State rate would be raised to match the federal rate. Future cost of living increases then would be added to that raised rate.
