March 2, 2021

Trenton: After hearing the concerns of New Jersey voters before, during, and after the 2020 Primary and General Elections, the New Jersey Republican State Committee (NJGOP) convened an Election Improvement Committee of electoral experts from across the state to discuss the issues that occurred during the 2020 election cycle and solutions to them.

 Some of the most frequently reported issues included extreme voter confusion, ballots being sent to moved or deceased people, duplicate ballots, slow and opaque ballot counting, inconsistent drop box policies, Motor Vehicle Commission driven registrations rife with error and many others. 

 The NJGOP has put forward a set of recommendations to address these and other issues with the New Jersey electoral process.

These recommendations are appropriate, achievable, non-partisan, and will ensure fair and free elections in New Jersey for years to come. I look forward to working with the proper entities and officials to implement these recommendations immediately so that New Jerseyans can continue to have faith in our electoral process.”
