Yes, but downtown turnout is usually pretty pathetic.

Well hopefully that low turnout is everywhere else except downtown.

Maybe in the end that helps the "not-Healy" percentage of voters.

Light turnout seen in Jersey City mayoral race

Philadelphia Inquirer
May 12th 2009
The Associated Press

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy says voter turnout is light in his bid for a second four-year term.

The 58-year-old faces four challengers Tuesday. Former state Assemblyman Louis Manzo, Assemblyman L. Harvey Smith, businessman Daniel Levin and police detective Phillip Webb seek the city's highest office, which pays $117,728. Light turnouts typically favor incumbents.

The winner must get more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff with the second-place finisher.

The polls close at 8 p.m.

The community of 242,000 is located across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan and may soon supplant Newark as the New Jersey's largest city.

Six candidates are also vying to be mayor in neighboring Hoboken.
