There are 18 voting districts, each with an elected local election board. A Judge of Elections, a Majority Inspector and a Minority Inspector are elected by the voters in the district. That’s 54 people. In addition, a machine operator for the first two machines, a clerk and a constable are appointed by the Judge and the Minority Inspector. . Six people; 18 districts; 108 people in total.

But only nine Republicans ran for Judge. Not one Democrat. Three Republicans and five Democrats ran for inspector Seventeen people out of a needed 108. Fifteen percent of the 108 people got on the ballots and ran for an elected position. None had oopposition. All seveteen won.

Getting candidates on the ballot is one of the basic jobs of a political party. In Northampton township neiter Committee knows how to do that. What a shame.
