Election 2021: Legislative District 29

The 29th District covers Belleville and part of Newark in Essex County.

It’s a district that heavily favors Democrats: Only 7% of district voters are registered as Republicans, while 52% are Democrats and most of the rest are unaffiliated.

All the incumbents are Democrats and all are seeking reelection. They are Sen. Teresa Ruiz, deputy chief of staff to the Essex County executive, and Assemblywomen Shanique Speight, a sheriff’s officer, and Eliana Pintor Marin, assistant Essex County administrator. All are from Newark.

No Republicans filed for any of the offices.
