Trenton Bureau’s Stacey Barchenger, Katie Sobko and Richard Cowen report

The official results from dozens of local elections held by mail on Tuesday are still being tallied, leaving many races too close to call and the fate of the upcoming primary itself in question.

Because traditional in-person voting risked spreading the coronavirus, voters instead mailed in their ballots for Tuesday’s more than 30 municipal, school board and special elections across the state. The election was seen as a bellwether for how voters will cast ballots in the primary, which has been delayed from June to July because of the novel coronavirus crisis.
