NEWARK – Top election officials from Utah and Connecticut joined Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way, the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice and the League of Women Voters of New Jersey today to brief New Jersey legislators, legislative staff and election officials on same-day voter registration. The Utah and Connecticut officials emphasized the secure nature of same-day voter registration and the capability of election officials in their states to implement it smoothly and effectively.
Connecticut and Utah are two of 20 states – in addition to Washington, D.C. – that have same-day voter registration.
Through its Democracy in A Day campaign, New Jersey advocates have been urging legislators to pass A1966/S247, sponsored by Assemblyman Mukherji and Senator Sandra Cunningham. The legislation will allow eligible residents to securely register and vote in a single day, including on Election Day.
