Skip to comments.Election Day could become two weeks long under N.J. Democrats' bill

Instead of having one day to vote, New Jersey residents would get a two-week window to cast their ballots in person under a measure approved by an Assembly panel today.
The voting process would undergo a costly sea change if the bill (A3553) becomes law. Every municipality with more than 30,000 voters would have to set up more polling places, keep them open longer and hire more poll workers.
The nonpartisan Office of Legislative Services said yesterday that the changes would cost the state $46 million this year and $20 million in the next year, agreeing with a cost estimate by Gov. Chris Christies administration.
The chairman of the state Democratic Party, Assemblyman John Wisniewski, said Hurricane Sandy kept many people at home who would have voted. The superstorm struck New Jersey days before the 2012 elections.

That’s all extended voting does.
You have to understand. The DemocRATS depend on lazy freeloader voters to get elected. It’s tough to get them to put down the bon bons, turn off the TV and fill out all those mail in ballots.
All the better to cheat you with my dear.
OH... so instead of getting 140% turnout, they can get more like 500% turnout... and ALL VOTES COUNT!
Just FYI, I’ll be registering to vote in NJ in 2014. I recommend all FReepers to do the same. Thanks SMGFan.
Democrats: Working to rig elections for years to come.
Democrat election strategy:
You can’t be in two places at the same time.
But you can be in two places at different times.
Or three or four or five. And no photo ID required either.
A hurricane of this magnitude will almost certainly never hit NJ that close to an election again.
But, we’re in an era of never letting a crisis going to waste, so I guess this excuse is as good as any.
Useless RINO Christie needs to sit down on his big butt, grab a pen, and veto this BS.
You need no question mark at the end of that sentence, SMGFan.
The 'Rats fully realize that early voting aids and abets election fraud, and the more days the polls are open, the greater the the quantity of fraud there will almost certainly be.
On the heels of the 2012 election, in which 'Rat election cheating, especially in the swing states, was so prevalent that it likely tipped the election to Obama, the 'Rats are trying to spread early voting (i.e., multiple day voting) everywhere it doesn't already exist!
It's about time for the national GOP to wake up to the whole issue of election fraud and push back against these nefarious election procedures that have been put in place in the last several decades, of which early voting is a major one.
It stands to reason that every additional minute the polls are open allows more time for operatives to vote again and again and again, using whatever phony names and addresses they wish to come up with.
Accordingly, it is incumbent upon anyone supporting election integrity to fight to repeal early voting wherever it already has taken root and to fight against its introduction wherever the cheats try to start it - as in NJ. Early voting is a cancer on a fair election system because of sleazebags to whom it offers a golden opportunity to rig the process.
I wonder if fat a$$ will veto it if it passes.
The “election judges” will simply compare signatures on the voting authority & the one on file. That is their job. /s
All the better to cheat and steal with.
If it keeps abortion legal for one more day, if it alienates one more ally, if it encourages one more teenager to have sex before he or she should, if one more little old lady is beaten to death in her own home for want of a .25 caliber pistol, then it will all be worth it. Don’t forget what Aristophanes said in Clouds: “Everyone already is a large arse, so why fight it?”/sarc
Nothing new about an extended voting time frame. See the list at the link below.
Early Voting: In 32 states and the District of Columbia, any qualified voter may cast a ballot in person during a designated period prior to Election Day. No excuse or justification is required.
We need to use indelible ink on the finger and require a fingerprint for every vote. I wonder how long it takes for computer scans of fingerprints to be analyzed for duplicates.
Indelible ink is a good idea, if the election is a one-day affair, as it traditionally was before the relatively recent fad of "early voting" pushed on us by the Democrats in many states. The longer you keep the polls open, the greater the chance of the indelible ink washing or wearing off.
I don't think requiring and checking fingerprints of all voters is practical; it would take too much time to scan and get results returned. Requiring photo IDs are a next best alternative for cutting down on multiple voting by the same individual.
>> “ it would take too much time to scan and get results returned.” <<
If they would be able to use the NSA facilities, the scan and recognition might take 2-5 seconds using satelite links.
The Constitution is so clear on this, I don’t understand why all of this extended voting is allowed.
