Bramnick proposes constitutional amendment for in-person voting

Assembly Minority Leader wants 75% legislative approval for mostly VBM election

Elections conducted primarily through mail-in ballots would need the approval of three-fourths of the New Jersey Legislature under a proposed constitutional amendment being proposed by Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick.

“One party rule in Trenton has decided to reject ‘in person voting’ in New Jersey,” said Bramnick.  “We need a constitutional amendment that would only deny in person voting if 75% of the legislature agreed.”

Bramnick has sharply criticized Gov. Phil Murphy for governing through executive order without legislative approval during the COVID crisis.

“Politics should never influence our right to vote,” said Bramnick.

An assemblyman since 2003 and the Republican leader since 2012, Bramnick has said he is seriously considering running for governor against Murphy next year.
