NJ Senate Passes Two Bills on Election Date

New Jersey lawmakers are sending two bills to Gov. Chris Christie to allow voting for the Nov. 5 general election 20 days earlier, during a special U.S. Senate election.

Christie has called one measure “dead on arrival.” It would simply move the general election to Oct. 16.

The second bill would allow early, in-person voting in the general election during the special election.

Both received final passage in the state Senate on Thursday.

Christie has been criticized for scheduling the election to replace late Sen. Frank Lautenberg just three weeks before the already scheduled balloting.

Christie is on the November ballot in his re-election bid. All 120 legislative seats are also up in the general election, along with local elections.
