WATCH: Sizing up the early ballot count

Poll workers are wasting no time, hoping to avoid long-term uncertainty about election outcomes

New Jersey voters have just eight days left to exercise the right to vote in this year’s general election. So far, more than 2.5 million residents have made sure their voice is heard by casting a mail-in ballot. According to the state, that’s about two-thirds of the total voter turnout from 2016. Poll workers across New Jersey are already hard at work counting those ballots, being given the green light to begin the process 10 days out from the election, in hopes of avoiding days, even weeks, of uncertainty. Correspondent and Anchor Michael Hill goes behind-the-scenes for a look at the early ballot count.
