Bob Giles joins vote-by-mail advocacy group

By David Wildstein, March 01 2019 11:48 am

Bob Giles, the director of the New Jersey Division of Elections, has signed on to the advisory board of the National Vote at Home Institute, a bi-partisan group of state election officials seeking to improve the vote by mail process.

The group’s circle of advisors is co-chaired by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, and Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman, a Republican.

“This extraordinary group spans all the relevant constituencies of elected leaders, elections administrators, academia, and advocacy. When we set out to pull together a set of Advisors, we had no idea how many experienced, influential people would be interested in expanding access to mailed-out ballots as a way to help secure our elections, increase voter engagement and turnout, and lower costs. To our delight, the response was overwhelming,” said Amber McReynolds, the group’s executive director.

Giles has run the state election division since 2008.  He had previously spent thirteen years with the Ocean County Board of Elections.
