Turnout reported low with big Freeholder stakes on the line

There's reports of low turnouts across the region with one report out of Jersey City earlier saying it was a 20 year low.

 In Hoboken, it also looks low with the weather cooperating late before the polls close but the "rush hour" time when many return home seeing a rainstorm blow through.

The sleepy summer like weather earlier may play well to the re-election bid of Anthony "Stick"
Romano who is the well known candidate who one voter is quoted as saying, "goes to all the events."

The polls are closed and the returns will be coming in shortly.

Did you vote today?

Talking Ed Note: With no official tally in, Anthony "Stick" Romano has jumped in with what looks like an absentee ballot tally of 292 votes before the first polls are even counted. Phil Cohen has 27 VBMS.

That could be an impossible lead to overcome even with initial unconfirmed reports saying Phil Cohen looks solid in Jersey City. It may not be enough to overcome low turnout in the Mile Square.
