New Jersey voters may have set another record for low turnout Tuesday — this time for a gubernatorial election.With 99 percent of the voting precincts counted, 2,073,642 voters cast ballots for governor, according to the Associated Press. That's a shade less than 38 percent of the state's registered voters. The voter totals will go up because they don't include provisional ballots yet to be counted, as well as those who may have voted for other offices but not governor. The record low for a governor's race is 47 percent, set four years ago. The special U.S. Senate election held three weeks ago set the record for lowest turnout of any Jersey state level-contest: 24.5 percent
Eric Bolling said he was on his way to vote and went home when he realized he just could not vote for the least bad governor candidate.
