Over 2 million votes cast in New Jersey

More than 2 million votes have been cast in New Jersey for the 2020 general election, as of 11 AM today, 51% of the total turnout four years ago.

Voters have returned 2,014,395 vote-by-mail ballots as of 11 AM today, representing a 33% statewide turnout of eligible voters 13 days before the November 3 General Election.

Of that number, 179,343 mail-in ballots arrived since Tuesday morning.

These numbers do not include ballots received by local election officials that have not yet been recorded into the voter registration database.

Voters can track their ballots at https://www.nj.gov/state/elections/vote-track-my-ballot.shtml to confirm receipt by the county Board of Elections.

Here’s a shortcut that will make it easier to sign up for Track My Ballot: go to voter search — https://voter.svrs.nj.gov/registration-check — and get your Voter ID number and then use that number instead of your driver license or social security number.

And this is important: when you get your Voter ID, know that it begins with a letter, followed by nine digits — watch the O’s and the I’s, which are not zeros or ones.
