    In New Jersey, all 120 legislative seats are up for election, but experts predict few people will turn out to vote because the the races are not considered to be competitive (with the possible exception of Bergen and Atlantic Counties).

    Philadelphia has some potentially confusing ballot questions up for referendum, not to mention a mayoral race and some hotly contested council seats.

    So we were wondering, among the various ballot measures, mayoral and council races, row office and judicial races and legislative races, how many people voted today. Some experts are predicting record low voter turnout. So, if you defied the experts today, was there a specific reason, or are you all just overachievers?
