District 33 in Hudson County encompasses Hoboken, Union City, Weehawken and part of Jersey City.
Fully half of all registered voters identify themselves as Democrats. About 9 percent are Republicans, and most others have no party affiliation.
Only one of the two Democratic incumbents is seeking re-election. Assemblyman Carmelo Garcia of Hoboken is bowing out after one term. Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, an attorney and former deputy mayor of Jersey City, is running with Annette Chaparro of Hoboken.
The Republican ticket features Garrett P. Simulchik Jr. of Jersey City and Javier Sosa of Union City.
