New Jersey has received 1,293,883 vote-by-mail ballots for the 2020 general election as of close of business on Thursday.
That number is up 146,768 from the previous 24-hour period and reflects only those ballots that have been logged in as received by county election officials. Several counties are working through delays in recording VBM ballots that have been received through secure ballot drop boxes, in-person drop-off, and the U.S. Postal Service.
So far, 21.7% of all eligible voters have returned their general election ballots.
New Jerseyans have already cast 32.7% of the total statewide votes for the 2016 general election, 35.1% of those cast in 2012, and 33.1% of the total votes cast by state voters in 2008.
