New Jersey Adopts Automatic Voter Registration

New Jersey Adopts Automatic Voter Registration”

On Tuesday, New Jersey became the 13th state to adopt automatic voter registration-and the third to do so this year-continuing a trend that has seen blue states expand access to the ballot in an attempt to combat Republican voter suppression efforts.

Among the local groups that advocated for the law are the state chapters of the ACLU and League of Women Voters, as well as the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice. "It will get a ton more people registered", said Murphy.

"We stand in stark contrast to President Trump and others whose only interest lays in restricting voting rights and suppressing voters' voices", Mr. Murphy said before signing the bill in Trenton.

Murphy says registering to vote should be simple and seamless.

The law (A-2014), automatically registers and updates voter registration for those applying for a driver's license, examination permit, probationary driver's license or non-driver identification card. Assembly and Senate committees had approved the significant changes after little to no debate or public testimony.

The other states with automatic voter registration are: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia.

But Republicans have raised concerns about potential voter fraud. Sam Thompson (R-Middlesex) said in a statement. After he won the election in 2016, Trump set up a Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity that sought voter information from state databases. This unneeded "fix' will cost the taxpayers of New Jersey millions of dollars and will undoubtedly lead to increased voter fraud". The measure even allows any state agency that collects documents and personal data to "establish a procedure to automatically register people to vote". Though the law will be enacted by Nov. 1, there is an October deadline to register for November's general election.

There are almost 900,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans in New Jersey, according to the Division of Elections.

The more eligible people who are registered to vote, the stronger our democracy will be.
