Roselle پارک میں, when it comes to Democratic and Republican candidates running for municipal office, voters do not decide on who to vote for, they simply get to choose from candidates who have been already picked for them by municipal political committees.

The members of local political committees are the ones who decide who will run under their party line. During a primary, someone who is not picked by a local political committee but is registered as a Democratic or Republican can run against someone who has the party line. Whoever gets the most votes in the primary becomes the general election candidate. Roselle پارک میں, primary elections have been unopposed with only the party-backed candidates on the primary ballot.

ماضی میں, residents have won seats on local political committees with as little as two (2) votes.

During the primary, another often overlooked election takes place. It is the one that elects the local political committee members.

Each major political party holds these elections every two years with Democratic committee elections taking place during odd-numbered years and Republican committee elections occurring every even-numbered year.

اس سال, Roselle Park Democratic Committee (DPRK) members run for seats on the local committee. 20 seats are up for election – چار (4) seats for each of the five wards in Roselle Park. Each ward has two (2) districts with one man and one woman appointed for each district. Three (3) seats for RPDC committee members this year remain vacant.
