State Board of Canvassers Certifies 2005 New Jersey Election Results

TRENTON — The State Board of Canvassers today certified election results for the 2005 General Election for the offices of Governor, State Assembly, and to fill the remaining two years of a State Senate term in the 37th Legislative District, Attorney General Peter C. Harvey and Division of Elections Director Ramon de la Cruz announced.

The Board of Canvassers also certified election results for two public questions, approving an amendment to the New Jersey Constitution to establish the Office of Lieutenant Governor, and approving an amendment to the New Jersey Constitution to Expand Uses of Dedicated Tax Revenue to Fund Air Pollution Control and Administrative Costs of the Underground Storage Tank Program.

The Board of Canvassers formally certified the 2005 election results during a meeting this morning at the State House in Trenton. Attorney General Harvey served as chairman for the meeting. Membership of the Board of Canvassers consists of two State legislators from each major political party. They are Senator Leonard Lance (R-23); Assemblywoman Linda R. Greenstein (D-4); Assemblyman Joseph R. Malone III (R-30) and Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-15).

Today’s Board of Canvassers meeting completed a certification process that, during the past several weeks, involved the systematic review and re-tabulation of election results from around the State to ensure accuracy.

The official General Election results are available on the Division of Elections Web site at
