The 2009 Jersey City non-partisan mayoral election occurred on May 12, 2009. Incumbent Mayor Jerramiah Healy (Democrat) won re-election. Former Mayor Bret Schundler (Republican) was going to run, but dropped out in January 2009 for financial reasons. Healy needed a 51% vote to hold off a second round (like the 2004 and 2005 elections). Healy won the election with 53% vote against 4 other candidates. The voter turnout was only 30,658.[3]
