Elect Women NJ launches to increase number of women in elected local office

New Jersey ranks 21st in the country for women in elected office. In 231 years, we have never elected a US Senator. State held office lingers at 30%. In 2020, 44, or 32.6%, of the 135 County Freeholders in New Jersey are women, only 11% of the 44 are women of color. Among the 75 cities with populations over 30,000 in New Jersey, 10 (13.3%) have female mayors; only two mayors are women of color. “This lack of representation in both local and national office raises concerns about the health and quality of our democracy.
