Gov. Murphy: Same-day voter registration protects the sacred right to vote I Opinion

Thank you Governor Murphy, Senator Cunningham, Senator Pou, and Assemblyman Mukherji for making a strong case for same-day voter registration!

"In a state as diverse as New Jersey, there can be no doubt that same-day voter registration will make a real difference in strengthening access to the ballot and increasing voter turnout.

Whether we are Republicans or Democrats, our most important role as public officials is to protect the sacred right to vote — and that means making an effort to understand why the status quo just isn’t cutting it for younger voters, new residents or communities of color, and then doing something about it.

If that isn’t enough of a case for same-day voter registration, we don’t know what is."

Some of the benefits would include increased voter turnout and strengthening access to the ballot box.

Biden is disappointing those of us who didn’t want him in the first place. He has to really be an embarrassment to those who did.
It’s time to tell Gov. Murphy and Sen. Sweeney to stand up to corporate polluters in New Jersey and demand they pay their fair share. Click here
New Jersey’s Congressman Chris Smith was 1 of just 11 Republican congressmen who voted to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from committee assignments. Ms. Greene is a dangerous conspiracy theorist who has consistently acted without integrity, promoting violence and discord within the country and the House of Representatives. Congrats to Congressman Smith for demonstrating the fortitude and integrity that so many of his fellow legislators have sadly lacked.
I want to express my gratitude and appreciation for the survey questions that The League of Women Voters of New Jersey have sent me these past couple of years. I did enjoy answering these wonderful questions and I am looking forward to many new wonderful topics questions that I will be receiving for many more upcoming election years. I promise to suppose all women rights no matter what and will always hold myself accountable while protecting and defending all women everywhere. Again, thank you The League of Women Voters of New Jersey for giving me this opportunity to be part of the League of Women Voters of New Jersey School Board survey for this Presidential Election Day.
100 year anniversary - if they can do it we can do it. Make sure you VOTE 2020 #makechangehappen
I have been an active member of the Warren & West Morris Counties chapter since its beginning. I am also one of five candidates on our NJ ballots for US Senator. Four of the five candidates have been requesting a debate with Senator Cory Booker but he has yet to respond in any way. During a News 12 NJ interview on 9/8/2020 the Senator advised he was looking forward to a debate/forum with his challengers and no one is holding him to this. I am asking the League to PLEASE step up and formally and publicly ask the Senator to debate. It can be done safely and effectively with COVID whether in person or virtual. The voters of NJ are not being informed of all their choices and democracy is not being served. Please help!
