Democratic Princeton Council incumbents Heather Howard and Lance Liverman defeated their Republican challengers to win three-year terms on the governing body Tuesday night.
Howard was the top vote-getter with 3,207 votes. Liverman had 3,116 votes. Republican Lynn Lu Irving had 1,211 votes, and Republican Kelly DiTosto received 1,1117 votes.
The count includes absentee ballots.
The campaign season was a quiet one, with many voters saying they did not know anything about the challengers’ positions on town issues. Some years the Republicans don’t bother to field candidates for the council race in the Democrat-dominated town.
