Governor Murphy Announces Mostly Mail-In Voting For November Elections [UPDATE: Trump Suing Over VBM Plans]

UPDATE: President Trump’s is suing Governor Murphy over his plan to hold a mostly vote-by-mail election this November.

Trump’s administration filed a lawsuit late Tuesday night in federal court seeking to invalidate the Executive Order signed by Governor Murphy that essentially forces all New Jersey voters to cast their ballots by mail.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released a statement slamming Murphy’s plan.

“Governor Murphy’s order is not only an abuse of power, but a recipe for disaster,” McDaniel said. “In New Jersey’s primary election, dead people voted, a mail truck carrying ballots actually caught fire, countless voters saw their ballots rejected, and the Democrat Attorney General is prosecuting multiple people for fraud, yet Democrats still want to implement a rushed transition to an all mail election. This decision will sow chaos and risk disenfranchising New Jersey voters.”

 

In an interview on CNN this morning, Governor Murphy said that the general election being held in November will mostly be a mostly mail-in one in the state of New Jersey.

The governor said that all voters will be mailed a ballot, who will then have a choice whether to vote in person or by mail. Murphy did not specify whether only registered voters would automatically receive a mail-in ballot.

If an individual does choose to vote in person, they will have to do so at a limited number of polling stations and will have to do so via provisional ballot, meaning their vote will only be counted after officials confirm that they haven’t also cast a mail-in ballot.

President Trump has been publicly warning that a mail-in election will end up in ‘the most corrupt’ election in American history. Democrats call his anti-mail-in voting stance ridiculous, arguing that there have been so few cases of voting in US elections.

  1. what a disastrous mistake this is. Of course he doesn’t think it’s a mistake because he’s a leftist and they will do anything to steal the election. It didn’t work for them four years ago but now they’re trying again.

    There’s NO REASON WHATSOEVER that people cannot go to the polls and vote like they normally do. Anyone who has left their house in the last 5 months to go shopping or for any other reason, then whatever it is that they needed to do in order to leave their house and feel comfortable in their own skin. They could do the same thing to go vote! There’s no reason why not. Stop treating everyone like a bunch of babies!

    For those who cannot go out of the house because they’re immunocompromised, that’s quite understandable however, There’s such a thing called absentee voting which they should take advantage of. Mail order voting like we had for the primaries is a complete disaster and full of fraud. We had that already. Do we even know who REALLY REALLY REALLY won the Republican primary for Senate in our state? The answer to that is no.

  2. Does anyone else find it odd, that it is always members of a specific party that push policies that make it easier to commit fraud during elections?

    I need a drivers license to buy allergy medicine, but Democrats think that somehow an ID for voting is a too restrictive?

    Mail in ballots in the past required people to apply for them, and fraud is more difficult because people were expecting them, while those looking to commit fraud were not. Not only that, but some Dem states are allowing people to collect others ballots, and in some cases even fill it out for them

    Allowing vote by mail is a recipe for disaster. The results o the election will not be know for months, There will be repeated court challenges regarding partially filled ballots, ballots without postmarks, and that is a best case scenario.

    Regardless of who wins the elections, mass vote in mail will only insure that there will be mass unrest and claims of fraud after the election. Yet for some reason, it is evident over the past months that Democrats view unrest as beneficial for them. Though it is clearly not beneficial for the country.

    Instead of trying to stir unrest and enable election fraud, I have a novel idea for Democrats, how about actually creating policy that will actually benefit the U.S. and its citizens and earn votes the old fashioned way

  3. Voter fraud will be rampant in New Jersey. If you ever registered to vote you are on the Voter Rolls forever or until you request in writing to be removed from the voter rolls.
    My children have not lived home in over 15 years but I still get sample ballots for them each election. If they use the same list to send ballots to residents I will be getting more ballots than people that live here.
    Does anyone other than myself see a problem?

  4. Most think it’s bad for Trump and the Republicans; but I think it’s Good, as Democrats in minority areas usually round up voters and bring them with buses to vote; however these mail in ballots many democratic voters will find it difficult and complicated, many will push it off and forget about it or loose it, and many low income democrats never check their mail or toss their mail.

  5. The Democrats are following their playbook of 2016 where if they can’t win the election, they need to steal the election. We already know what they did last time but this time they’re trying to use the post office.

    The president is absolutely positively 100% right in suing the state of New Jersey for this highly fraudulent scheme of mailing a ballot to everybody.

    There is absolutely positively no reason why one cannot go to the polling place wearing a mask or whatever it is that needs to be worn. This isn’t March 15th where we don’t know anything, by that time it will be early November and there’s a lot more we know now than we knew then, including the fact that it’s really not transferable by touching surfaces. Put a mess on and go vote! If you’ve been out of your house to do any shopping or anything like that since March, you know what to do. The Democrats need to stop treating everyone like babies. Anyone who happens to be afraid to do that, is more than entitled to file for an absentee ballot. there is a difference between absentee ballots and sending a ballot to everyone!

    By the way do we know who the Republican Senate nominee is? There WERE problems with the mail and the vote count!
