HOBOKEN - As of 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Hudson County Board of Elections reported that 674 vote-by-mail ballots had been returned in Hoboken's race for six council seats. Candidates often try to secure that kind of vote in advance in Hoboken.
In the downtown wards, many candidates and workers lined First Street as commuters began to make their way home for the 5 p.m. rush. Challengers believe that with the warm weather, the turnout will increase as the end of the workday approaches.
If you haven't voted, polls throughout the city are open until 8 p.m.
