Voting in an online Morris County Democratic convention to pick a State Senate candidate in the 25th district is underway and will continue until 8 PM.
Three candidates – former Morris Township mayor Jeff Grayzel, former freeholder candidate Rupande Mehta and attorney Cliff Dawkins – are competing to take on State Sen. Anthony M. Bucco (R-Boonton) in a special election.
The three Democrats have committed to abiding by the convention choice and not running off-the-line in the June 2 primary.
Morris County Democratic Chairman Chip Robinson cancelled his convention in accordance with statewide social distancing recommendations to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Robinson said that “the system we are using for remote voting is secure and anonymous.”
“All eligible voters will vote using a code sent to their individual email address. There are only a handful of voters with no email address,” Robinson said. Those voters will be able to vote using a unique code on their phones, at a computer, or at the MCDC Parsippany headquarters.”
The New Jersey Globe has learned that all three candidates will receive a list of county committee members who have not yet voted at 5 PM, although no partial results will be released until the vote closes this evening.
