Hudson County voter turnout is not yet up to the total vote four years ago in the 2016 presidential race.
According to the most recent figures as of Nov. 1, the vote by mail ballots received from the county’s 12 municipalities totals 166,327. Comparatively, in 2016 there were 223,222 ballots cast.
Hudson County has about 410,000 registered voters meaning that going into the election on Nov. 3, over half of all registered voters had yet to cast their ballots.
Voters have until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3 to vote.
To cast a vote, voters must place their mail-in ballot in one of several secure drop boxes at multiple locations throughout Hudson County, go to a polling place to drop off a mail-in ballot or fill out a paper provisional ballot, or submit their ballots at the Hudson County Board of Elections Office, 257 Cornelison Ave., by 8 p.m., on Nov. 3.
Polling places will also provide accessible voting devices for those with disabilities.
