UPDATE: Murphy signs vote-rigging mail-in ballot bill

TRENTON, N.J. – Governor Phil Murphy signed legislation on Wednesday which will keep the New Jersey Democrat Party’s procedurally flawed and deeply corrupt vote-by-mail system rolling along through elections 2019, 2020 and beyond.

N.J. Republican Party Chairman Doug Steinhardt accused the Democrats of transparent vote rigging.

“Mark Twain said that, ‘[w]henever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect,’ unless, of course, you’re a New Jersey Democrat. Every time New Jersey gives Democrats complete control in Trenton they take everything not nailed to the floor. With this bill, they’ll take your right to choose,” said Steinhardt.

Before today, anyone who had requested a vote-by-mail ballot for the 2016 presidential election was automatically grandfathered in for future general elections. After today, anyone who applied to vote by mail in 2017 and 2018 will also receive a mail-in-ballot for 2019 without having to reapply. 

1 out of 8 voting citizens — approximately 400,000 New Jerseyans – cast their ballot by mail in the 2018. Democrats have ramped up their efforts in recent years to have a built-in advantage before election day dawns since Republicans are more likely to vote the day of the election. Their push comes in spite of (or some would argue BECAUSE of) mounting evidence of mail-ballot fraud.

“Trenton Democrats know that our state’s election pattern always swings back to giving Republicans a seat at the table, because of the self serving, predatory nature of their politics,” the chairman added. “These new vote-by-mail laws are an attempt to rig the 2019 elections and prevent that from happening in the Murphy Midterms. Everyone must be clear what they’re doing here.  It’s selective inclusion, and it’s wrong, if not illegal.”
