It is Wednesday, October 13th 2021 and we are taking a deep dive into the current state of returns in New Jersey.  As of 10/12/2021 193,471 voters have voted.  That is 3.16% of eligible voters in the Garden State.  Democratic early turnout is strong and that is expected.  A couple interesting notes, Teachers have actually made the list of occupations above 1% of the returns, that is significant and nurses are still holding a spot in the top tier as well.   We took a quick look at donor history of the early voters and found that the  early voters in the Garden State support their local community causes (30+%) and healthcare causes (20+%) additional information is below.
