4 Reasons NJ Lawmakers Want Votes of Dead People

4 Reasons NJ Lawmakers Want Votes of Dead People

New Jersey allows voters to mail their ballots in early before Election Day voting, but the ballots don’t get counted until that night.

One Ocean County politician wants the right to vote extended to those early voters who pass away before election night.

Lehighvalleylive.com reports that Assemblyman Donald Dancer has proposed legislation allowing the early votes of those who die before polls open for an election to still count toward the final results. Election boards are currently required by law to reject mail-in ballots of those who pass on before the opening of the polls.

Dancer said his original legislation was directed toward active members of the military. His son-in-law served in Iran and Afghanistan. Dancer said, according to NJ.com, “I believe strongly in making sure he had a mail-in ballot to vote."

The assemblyman believes New Jersey should follow the lead of Indiana, which has proposed allowing the votes of everyone who casts an absentee ballot and later passes away to count. Essex County Clerk Chris Durkin wants to see the votes of the deceased count.
