Tuesday’s general election saw a sweep Democrats in Aberdeen, including another term for the township's mayor.
Mayor Fred Tagliarini, a Democrat who took office in 2009, defeated Republican challenger Augustine T. Toomey, taking 53 percent of the vote.
Tagliarini won 2,273 votes to Toomey’s 1,984, according to unofficial results from Monmouth County's Office of the County Clerk.
The council race in Aberdeen was not as decisive a victory as the mayor’s contest.
Democratic council incumbent Margaret M. Montone, who was elected to the governing body in 2009 and became Deputy Mayor in 2012, along with candidate Joseph J. Martucci, defeated Republican challengers Michael T. Vail and Edward A. Failla by a narrow margin.
Montone and Martucci took 26 and 25 percent of the vote, respectively, compared to 24 and 23 percent for Vail and Failla, according to the county.
The two available Matawan-Aberdeen Board of Education seats went to John P. Delaney and Joelle Nappi, who took 35 and 33 percent of the vote, compared to Patricia A. Phillips' 30 percent, according to the county.
Though vote tallies from all districts in Aberdeen were counted Tuesday night, results remain unofficial until mail-in and provisional ballots are counted.
