Next up: long lines at ballot drop off locations?

“Another Murphy debacle… you can’t stand in line to vote in person on a machine but you can stand in line to drop of mandated vote by mail ballots,” tweeted Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso on Monday afternoon, sharing photos of the Monmouth County Board of Elections located in Freeholder. “And ballots only just came, imagine what next week will bring?
