First, the Ward map shown in the article is long outdated. The Wards were completely redrawn about 15 years ago, give or take. Why does the County Board of Elections have the old map ?

Also, it's inaccurate to say that the two challenger tickets canceled each other out. The supporters of the Lara Rodriquez ticket (aka Democratic machine ticket) are diametrically opposed to Deborah's slate, and vis versa.  To suggest that they could have all voted to support just one of them is completely ignorant of the politics and history of Hackensack, and the people involved.

You win by getting YOUR VOTERS to the polls. Don't worry about the other guy's voters, you already lost and they won't change their minds.  And there's plenty of voters out there who didn't vote, literally thousands of them, and they could have been "rounded up" to add to the total of any of the tickets.  Educate the public and get support, and then get YOUR VOTERS out to the polls, and you will win. That's the bottom line.  Don't cry about having two tickets opposing you.

Dear Mr. Martindale. For a thumbs up:  Please demonstrate how and why your statement is supported and indicate any exact words with sources that state what you are implying was stated by the incumbent or anyone else. Please use their exact words, and why you state your conclusion. You sound like someone supporting a ticket or expect everyone to agree with a statement that is unsupported. And please give us your view of the politics and ties in Hackensack and why you have made your conclusion. What are the facts, please support your statement, and and why we should take it as absolute.  Sorry for the thumbs down. New in town Thank you 123
