Locally, three candidates are running for two Maplewood Township Committee seats in 2024: incumbents Nancy Adams and Jamaine Cripe, and Malia Herman.

Elections are also taking place within the South Orange and Maplewood Democratic Committees — or County Committees. Two district leaders are elected for each district —there are 12 districts in South Orange and 21 districts in Maplewood. Currently, there are only Democratic committees active in each town. District leaders help to register voters and get out the vote on election day for Democratic candidates. In Maplewood, they also vet and endorse candidates for the Township Committee annually. Several races are contested this year, which is unusual, while no one is running in several other races.
