Election Day changes trigger new ELEC deadlines

By David Wildstein, March 23 2020 10:25 am

Changes of special election and school board elections dates have triggered new reporting deadlines for the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.

Gov. Phil Murphy announced last week that he was moving March 31 special elections in Atlantic City, Old Bridge and West Amwell, and April 21 school board elections in Cliffside Park, Fairview, Garfield, Hackensack, Oakland, Ridgewood, Irvington, Newark, North Bergen, Weehawken, West New York, New Brunswick, Passaic and Totowa to May 12.

The 29-day pre-election report will be due for all those races on April 13, followed by an 11-day pre-election report on May 1 and a 20-day post-election report on June 1.

Nearly 730,000 New Jersey voters will now go to the polls on May 12.
