BERNARDSVILLE, N.J. – Don’t think remote elections are good policy? Fears that New Jersey’s all (or mostly) mail-in ballot primary election won’t be successful were already validated this week in one Somerset County community.
Here’s one example:
Somerset’s county clerk – Steve Peter – is a Democrat first elected in 2017.
Sadly, Bernardsville’s problem doesn’t appear to be isolated.
Delivery mishaps and allegations of mass fraud plagued local vote-by-mail elections earlier this spring. For example, 19% of the ballots cast in Paterson were invalidated by officials.
The Murphy Administration promised limited in-person voting for the upcoming July 7th primary election, rescheduled from June due to COVID-19, but scant details have been provided to date.
