Unofficial statistic for statewide voter turnout

More than 3.65 million New Jerseyans voted in yesterday’s election, or 63.3 percent of the registered electorate. That is less than the 67 percent that voted in 2012 — and that was the year of Hurricane Sandy, when many voters couldn’t get to the polls. There are 5.8 million registered voters in the Garden State. The county with the highest turnout was Hunterdon, with 75.2 percent voting; they voted for Trump 55 percent to 41 percent. Camden appears to be the county with the lowest turnout at 53.5 percent. Camden voted in favor of Clinton, 65 percent to 33 percent.
