New Jersey sees lowest turnout in governor's election since 1920

TRENTON (AP) -

Voter turnout in Tuesday's New Jersey gubernatorial came in under 40%, by far the lowest in a governor's election since at least 1920.

Unofficial results from the state Division of Elections show just over 2 million people cast votes out of 5.5 million eligible voters, or about 37%. The turnout number will rise somewhat as results from a handful of remaining precincts are reported. But it will remain far below the 47% mark four years ago that was a previous low. Gov. Chris Christie received about 60% of the votes in this week's election, which came 20 days after a special U.S. Senate election where only about one-fourth of voters participated.
