30th District lawmakers introduce bill to keep in-person voting for future elections: “We are now seeing the consequences”

Sen. Robert Singer and Assemblymen Sean Kean and Edward Thomson are sponsoring legislation that would guarantee in-person voting and prohibit automatically distributing mail-in ballots for future elections.

The legislators said confusion surrounding the voting changes and the resulting delays of election results illustrate the need to prevent these changes from being imposed again in future elections.

“Governor Murphy’s vote-by-mail mandate has been an unmitigated disaster,” said Singer (R-Monmouth). “Voters were confused and mistrustful of these changes from the beginning and we still don’t know the results of this election.”

The measure introduced Thursday would amend the state constitution to prohibit laws and executive orders that automatically distribute mail-in ballots or limit voters from voting in person.

“The voters of New Jersey need to know that their votes have been properly counted and that our election results are valid,” said Kean (R-Monmouth). “The delays in getting election results only breeds mistrust in the process and increases fears that the elections have been manipulated.”

Days after the polls closed, New Jersey races for the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as county and municipal offices, remain undecided and will likely not be determined for days.

“We are now seeing the consequences of forcing people to vote by mail and limiting in-person voting,” said Thomson (R-Monmouth). “We need to make sure this mess created by the governor cannot be repeated in future elections.’”

  1. What a typical Republican bullheaded response.

    They could set procedures in place so that they won’t be scrambling in the future in the last minutes. They could set up a system that allows for mail-in voting every time.

    But no, all they can suggest is disenfranchising as many people as possible.

    How can they pre-judge future pandemics? What if there is another, more deadly one? How do they know what the future holds?

    And the main question is, what problem are they coming to solve? What was the problem this year that needs to be resolved? The only problem I see is that the crybaby in chief cannot accept that there is a possibility that the electorate has rejected him. The only solution for a skid mark like that is the detergent of a constitutional amendment requiring an IQ test to become president.

    • Your premise that in-person voting disenfranchises people is misguided. To believe it you would have to believe that large swaths of the people you think will be disenfranchised are stupid.

      This was an predicted (by trump) and preventable (by congress) disaster.

      Now for the jab:
      If an IQ test was required, democrats would not be eligible ever.

      • The inability to get to the polling place is not a sign of stupidity. Unless you are unsure of the translation of the word ‘stupid’.

        This is not a disaster at all. People voted in person, mostly Republican. But the mail-in ballots were always expected to lean Democrat, because Democrats are more likely to take covid19 seriously. So the initial results looked like Trump was going to win, but later the numbers changed. This was all predicted by everyone with open eyes, yet Trump does not have the ability to comprehend it.

        There is no problem here, no disaster. Votes came in and they were counted. We have to still hear of a single credible claim of widespread problems. Most of what we have been hearing is total and utter balderdash.

  2. Kudos! Hopefully all states will pass such legislature as well. This was my first time voting and I’m completely disillusioned with the democracy we supposedly live in. It feels closer to an iranian/chinese/Russian election.

  3. I couldn’t agree more! I hated this mail in ballot business and did not feel like I was voting even though I dropped off my ballot at the polling station.

      • This is the argument the left makes:
        You can have a 2nd amendment but we’ll hinder you to the point where you feel its pointless.
        You can have a 1st amendment but we’ll hinder you to the point where you feel its pointless.
        You can have a right to vote, but we’ll hinder you to the point where you feel its pointless.

        But the second they think you’re coming for Roe v Rade they lose their minds about rights.

        • And yet it was a Republican state (Texas) that limited voter drop boxes to one per county (won by a Trump). You had Florida deny convicts who had been released from prison after serving their time the right to vote (Trump won the state). You had the Republican party trying to stop the counting of votes (even though our active duty troops have up until 11/10/2020 for their votes to be counted, way to support our troops). Still trying to figure out what you mean by denial of your first amendment rights, unless you’re talking about the crackdown of the outright lack of regard for the health crisis that was going on. 2nd amendment rights, are you referring to national gun law so that every state is on the same page assuring people that shouldn’t have guns aren’t getting them? Or are you referring to the notion that people need weapons to defend themselves against the government? If it was the latter I hate to inform you but your bushmaster will not hold up to anything our military can throw at you.

  4. My vote was not counted. I know there are more to be counted, but that is very fishy since ocean County is practically done counting the vote. I am not the only one.

  5. All legitimate mail-ins will be counted. They are all invisibly watermarked and impossible to decrypt. Questionable and fake ballots will quickly be identified with existing database cross-checks. The National Guard will step in for a recount and audit with CISA Election Fraud Unit.

    They knew this was coming.

    Singer, Kean, and Thompson just want the Constitution enforced with legal and viable contingencies. And they are honorable men with honorable intentions.

    Not the rampant fraud we’re seeing.

    But wait for the right moment to see the plan is already foiled.
