The district is represented by Republicans, both of whom are seeking re-election. Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco is a lawyer and former Boonton Board of Education member first elected in 2010. Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll, a Morris Plains lawyer, is finishing his 10th term in the lower house.

The Democratic slate features Richard J. Corcoran III of Boonton and Thomas Moran of Randolph.
