The Popular Vote above is based on official returns from the 6 June Primary. This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.

Delegates are directly elected in the New Jersey Republican Primary. Both the delegate's name and Presidential Preference are marked on the ballot. Here are the unofficial results in each congressional district:

Tuesday 6 June 2000: all of New Jersey's 54 delegates to the Republican National Convention will be directly elected in the New Jersey Presidential Primary, in which delegates are listed on the ballot as slates pledged to a presidential contender. This is a "Loophole" type primary in which there is also a presidential preference vote atop the ballot: a so-called "beauty contest", the results of which have no effect on the allocation of National Convention delegates.

  • "Each of the State's 13 congressional districts is assigned 3 National Convention delegates: a total of 39 district delegates to be directly elected by the voters and appearing on the ballot as slates of delegates with their presidential preferences indicated. In addition, 15 at-large delegates top the slates on the ballot and are also to be elected directly, a vote for the first name on the at-large plus district delegate slate being a vote for the entire slate. Thus, each voter chooses a slate of 18 National Convention delegates (the 3 from his or her district plus the 15 at-large delegates)."

New Jersey has 21 counties and 13 congressional districts: 7 counties are wholly within a given congressional district; 14 counties are divided among more than one congressional district.

In the State of New Jersey, the General Law County Subdivision is the Township; however, there are also the following types of Municipalities: Cities, Towns, Boroughs and Villages. Under New Jersey law, Townships and Municipalities are equivalent- the Townships have the same general powers as any Municipality while Municipalities are completely separate from the Township(s) from which they were once created: therefore, all Townships and Municipalities are Minor Civil Divisions of the first order in New Jersey and, because of this, Townships are often referred to as "Municipalities" in lists of local governmental units, while Municipalities are often referred to as "Townships" (particularly in court records and other legal documents). To make matters even more confusing, the type of local governmental unit may not necessarily reflect the type of local government it actually has (e.g., there are Townships with "Town Government", etc.). To avoid any such confusion in the listing of the Congressional Districts re: the Minor Civil Divisions/local governmental units of New Jersey below, no reference will be made to the type of Municipality/Township unless there are two or more such units in a given County with the same- or a similar- name:
