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.

Assembly and Senate committees had approved the significant changes after little to no debate or public testimony.
