Newark mayor demands resignation of election board after declaring victory for a third term –

Mayor Ras J. Baraka angrily declared victory Tuesday in his bid for a third 4-year term in Newark’s non-partisan municipal election Tuesday, demanding the resignation of the entire Essex County Board of Elections after he said many of the city’s Black and brown voters had been disenfranchised as a result of changes in polling places only days before the election.

“They should leave immediately and at once,” Baraka told hundreds of supporters gathered in a reception area at the Prudential Center arena about two hours after polls had closed.
