The two party system of government is broken but in West Milford it is even worse because we only have a one party system. With no Democratic candidates as challengers, the Republican primary has become a de facto general election.
There are about 17,600 registered voters in West Milford. Around 52% are unaffiliated and 19% are registered Democrat. This leaves less than 29% registered Republicans to vote in the primary. 18% of the town participated in this primary and the 2200 votes Signorino and McGuiness got represent only 12.5% of all registered voters in this town.
