In 1st district, nearly 58% of VBM ballots returned

Early 58% of all vote-by-mail ballots sent out in the 1st district have been returned, with both parties remaining virtually even.

The race between incumbent Bob Andrzejczak (D-Middle) and Cumberland County GOP Chairman Michael Testa, Jr. is the only State Senate race of the year.  Two Assembly seats, both held by Democrats, are also in play.

Of the 8,028 ballots that have been returned, 41.6% are from Democrats and 41.3% from Republicans.  There are still 5,911 VBM ballots still out – 35% of them belong to Democrats, 29% from Republicans, and 36% from Unaffiliated (aka Independent) voters.

The 1st district has 3,097 more Republicans than Democrats, 30.5% to 28.4%, with 39.6% of voters unaffiliated with any political party.
