With just five days left to return your mail-in ballot for the 2020 election, over 3,000,000 voters have cast their ballots in New Jersey according to Governor Phil Murphy. As of Thursday afternoon, 2,988,234 ballots were cast. 4 million votes were cast in the 2016 election.
“The latest numbers from the Secretary of State and the Division of Elections shows that a total of, as you can see, 2,988,234 ballots have been returned to our county clerks, and we are now at just over 75% of the total voter turnout from 2016,” Murphy said. “That was about 3.9 million. There is little doubt that we will pass 3 million ballots returned today, which is a huge step and statement. And again, I don’t care who you vote for, please vote.”
