TRENTON, N.J. – 125 Murphy Administration attorneys will be prowling New Jersey’s 21 counties on Election Day on the orders of activist, far-Left state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal.
“The reason we assign DAsG [deputy attorney generals] throughout the state is to help ensure the integrity of the election process, to safeguard the voting rights of all persons who are eligible to vote, and to assist county election officials in resolving any voting-related legal issues that might arise,” said Grewal in a statement released by his office. ”Voting is one of the bedrocks of our democracy, and we take seriously our role in helping to make sure that election processes in every county are fair, and that any voting-related legal matters are resolved promptly and even-handedly.”
The AG’s office says its attorneys’ presence is intended to “handle any court applications, and to provide timely legal advice to County Superintendents of Election and Boards of Election.”
Solicitation or electioneering within the 100-foot “protective zone” from the entrance of polling sites is punishable by law.
Grewal most recently made headlines for attempting to strong arm New Jersey counties that had chosen to continue working with ICE in defiance of his late 2018 Sanctuary State directive.
New Jersey is expecting a number of close legislative, county, and local contests on Tuesday which could be decided by a handful of votes.
