Reports from all parts of Monmouth County indicate a historically high turnout for the mid-term election today. As of noon, some Middletown voting districts had a turnout of 50% of all registered voters.
In Neptune, as of 10 am, 3287 voters had turned out, which I’m told is 45% of the total turnout in 2014.
The turnout in a Manalapan district exceed the 2014 turnout as of noon.
There were lines to vote in Freehold Township, Long Branch and Howell this morning.
GOP U.S. Senate candidate visited the New Monmouth Diner in Middletown this morning. He said good turnout is good for Democracy and that he’s been hearing encouraging anecdotes from throughout the state.
Hugin also visited the Colts Neck Reformed Church for a Senior Citzens luncheon.
Great to be in Colts Neck this afternoon! I’ve heard so many stories from our seniors that our state is becoming too unaffordable for families to stay together in New Jersey. We have to address this crisis and turn our state around. #NJSen pic.twitter.com/J6xGzPRZU3
