Absentee voting

The consensus among insiders from both parties is that as of Monday morning, Democrats are ahead — literally. Various County Clerks throughout the state are reporting near-record numbers of people who have already voted via absentee ballot, perhaps a result of a new law that allows unrestricted absentee voting. Jon Corzine’s campaign made a huge push to secure absentee votes. Doug Forrester’s campaign says they did as well, but a statewide mailing included the 2004 version of the absentee ballot application — the one that required voters to state the reason why they could not vote in person.
