Lakewood Sees Record Turnout of 4,500 Voters During Early In-person Voting Period

A whopping 4,573 Lakewood residents turned out to vote during the 9-day early in-person voting period which concluded yesterday, ahead of Tuesday’s general election.

The early voting period was capped by a strong turnout of 1,320 people on Sunday – a number so large, it necessitated the Ocean County Board of Elections to send an additional voting machine to accommodate the large crowds.

Combined with the rest of 30th Legislative District, there were a total of 6,649 in-person voters across the district – the second most of all 40 districts in the state.

Districtwide, 14,550 voters have cast a ballot so far, or 11% of the 132,433 registered voters.

In addition to Lakewood, the 30th Legislative District is made up of six Monmouth County municipalities, including Howell, Wall, Farmingdale, Lake Como Boro, Belmar Boro, and Avon-by-the-Sea.

Overall, 9,139 Lakewood voters have cast a ballot, or about 15% of the total amount of registered voters in Lakewood, a sharp increase when compared to previous elections without where members of the Legislature top the ballot.

In the 2019 Assembly election, Lakewood had a 16% total turnout, while in the 2021 gubernatorial election, 36% of registered voters in Lakewood cast a ballot.

  1. nebach on the people who actually think they are going to be getting free tuition, but do not realize that it’s not what tuition relief means EVEN “IF” that happens

  2. Nebach on you Moshe who belittles those who are heeding the call of the Gedolei Yisroel because it’s the right thing to do. Even if they won’t save one dime on tuition, they are being mekayeim the mitzva to heed the Chachmei Yisroel. Our Achdus is critical for the greater good of our community. This election will show how many of those living in Lakewood & the surrounding areas live with Emunas Chachomim. I hope we all choose the derech Hatorah.
