Republican State Chairman Douglas Steinhardt is bashing Democrats for calling a special legislative session to pave the way for voters who cast their ballots by mail in 2017 and 2018 to automatically receive VBM ballots for the November general election.
“Democrat politicians in Trenton are trying to rig New Jersey’s elections. It’s that simple. They are weaponizing the legislature and waging an all-out war against voters’ free will by selectively sending ballots to the people and places their policies prey on,” Steinhardt said. “This is the danger of one party rule.”
Steinhardt wants legislative leaders to “expand the scope” of the special session by approving bills to extend automatic voter registration to people who purchase hunting and fishing licenses.
“Not just the demographics to whom you hope to sell your seats,” Steinhardt said. “Who needs the Russians to meddle in US elections when you have NJ Democrats?”
