Skip to comments.Election Day could become two weeks long under N.J. Democrats' bill
Posted on 03/07/2013 7:08:27 PM PST by SMGFan
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.
The trouble with needing ID’s is that it wouldn’t matter in the heavily democrat precincts where the critical fraud is happening, unless there was some auditable record of an ID having been shown, like a photocopy of the ID - because the people running the show are corrupt. Remember in Pennsylvania in 2008 where the R observers were kicked out for an hour or so, while boxes of ballots were brought in?
I think the only way to stop stuff like that is to require something like a fingerprint, that can be documented on paper and duplicates can be detected. That’s what a signature is supposed to be, but a fingerprint would be scannable and able to be scientifically verified as either a copy or unique. The fingerprint could go right beside the signature so that it would be known which ballots were fraudulent. (Details would have to be figured out; I’m just saying this off the top of my head right now.)
But there would also have to be controls so that the software is accountable. Software that flips votes would have to be disallowed. I have no clue how that could be done, but there are some smart computer people who could figure out a way for the integrity of the tabulation to be audited and alarms to sound if anything within the program has been set to flip votes. At least it seems like that should be possible. If not, then we should get rid of electronic voting altogether.
I would say electoral integrity is definitely a national security issue.
If we have to show all our private parts before we can get on a plane, I’d think a fingerprint would be a breeze.
And nobody has to go to an office to get a fingerprint card; everybody’s got one. It would blow away all the excuses the left uses - all their reasons for saying this is suppression of certain votes.
If we’re not locking the barn door after the horse is already gone...
Glad you mentioned "software that flips votes," which is even a more serious cheating trick than "early voting", because it potentially can cause a greater numerical change in the vote count in the fraudsters' favor. Judging from the unexpectedly large differences between the pre-election poll results from generally reliable pollsters like Rasmussen and Gallup and the tabulated results in swing state after swing state last November, it would be reasonable to say that "vote flipping" via electonic hacking into optical scanners and touchscreen devices was done to an unprecedented extent.
There are a number of different dimensions of election fraud and cheating whose cumulative effect was so strong in November that it likely turned the presidential race around. Early voting leading to multiple voting was one problem, electronic hacking causing "vote flipping" another. Early voting can be outlawed by legislation; electronic hacking and vote flipping can be nitigated by more careful surveillance on the devices by knowledgeable computer professionals, as you say. Any serious attempt to tamp down on the cheaters must address both problems and even more. We must have the determination to do so or else 'Rats will be in the White House in perpetuity!
And make no mistake about it, the fraud and cheating were targeted to populated 'Rat contolled cities and counties in the swing states where it had maximal impact on the outcome.
The solution is to gather the voters together on the appointed day and have them raise hands to be counted.
