Murphy reviewing options for upcoming elections

Decision expected in next few says

By David Wildstein, March 15 2020 2:57 pm

Gov. Phil Murphy said he is a “actively reviewing all options” in dealing with the effects of coronavirus on upcoming elections, but said no decisions have been made.

“It’s too early to say,” Murphy said on an afternoon conference call to brief the media.

But he expects to have an answer within the next few days.

The governor said that extending the filing deadline is on the table.

Murphy did say that his administration plans to push for greater participation in New Jersey’s vote-by-mail program.

Voting in some parts of New Jersey begins in two weeks and continue into June.

Atlantic City is holding a March 31 referendum to change their form of government.   Some school board elections are held in April, including Newark and Hackensack, and more than a dozen municipalities have non-partisan municipal elections in May.
