Early Voting at Polling Places in NJ Approved

New Jersey legislators have adopted a bill that would allow early voting at polling places.

The measure was adopted by a 46-31 vote in the Assembly on Thursday. It now heads to Gov. Chris Christie.

In both chambers of the Legislature, the bill had support of Democrats and opposition from Republicans.

It would allow voting in three to seven locations in each county for five weeks before elections.

Sponsors say the measure would give voters a useful third option besides voting by mail, or in-person on Election Day. Thirty-two other states have in-person early voting.
