Ballots can’t be tossed because of incomplete certification form, judge rules

Judge sides with Atlantic County Democratic Committee

A superior court judge ruled the Atlantic County Board of Elections could not toss 33 ballots cast in Atlantic City last month because they lacked a completed duplicative certification form.

The board’s Republican commissioners wanted the ballots tossed out because the voters did not complete the form, prompting a suit from the Atlantic County Democratic Committee.

“The Democratic Party is the party of voter participation and inclusion,” said Atlantic County Democratic Chairman Michael Suleiman. “Democracy works through voting, not gamesmanship. That’s why ACDC intervened in support of counting these votes. I appreciate the efforts of our attorney Robert Herman and commissioners John Mooney and Audrey Miles for fighting for voters’ rights.”

The decision could have implications for New Jersey’s primaries, which will see most voters cast their ballots at a post box, not the ballot box.

“Every single vote matters and has a right to be counted, period.” said Suleiman.
