In 2008 and 2012, and to a lesser extent 2016, there were some precincts where Republicans got no votes. Example of a shut-out precinct in Louisiana's 2nd district special election, 2021:

Shutout precinct, 09/36B

I found that in Hudson County, about 88% of people who voted in the governor primary voted for Murphy (the only democrat in the primary), and only 4,172 votes were cast for Republican candidates. Given the uneven distribution of votes (there were areas in Hudson County that were basically tied in 2016's presidential election and there were others where there were almost no Trump votes), I am fairly sure that they exist in Hudson and Essex Counties.

Is there any documented evidence for these shutout precincts in the gubernatorial primary? If so, how many were there? This is based on a related topic pertaining to Philadelphia's elections and Mitt Romney.

In the nineteen counties which have made district-level results publically available, there are a total of 232 'shut-out' districts - 13 in Campden County, 128 in Essex County, 1 in Gloucester County, 40 in Hudson County, 11 in Mercer County, 8 in Middlesex County, 14 in Passaic County, and 17 in Union County.

In Atlantic, Bergen, Cape May, Cumberland, Hunterdon, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Salem, Somerset, and Sussex counties, every district returned at least one vote in the Republican primary.

Two counties have not made district-level results available - these are Burlington and Warren Counties.
