NJ Sample Ballots May Go Electronic

Under a cost-saving measure advanced by an Assembly panel, sample election ballots would be sent through e-mail to registered voters. Under current law, the ballots must be printed and mailed.

The bill would not require voters to receive their ballots via e-mail, but it would be an option for them.

“With the proliferation of e-mail, there is no reason to be wasting paper, postage and time in general on mailing hard-copy ballots to every registered voter,” said bill sponsor Assemblywoman Connie Wagner (D).

“This is a simple way to save tax dollars at the local level,” said Democratic Assemblyman Timothy Eustace, another sponsor of the measure.

The bill cleared the Assembly State Government Committee on Thursday.
