Hanlon makes it easier to opt-out of automatic Vote-By-Mail

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon today posted a form on her website for voters to use if they want to opt-out of the automatic Vote-By-Mail law recently signed by Governor Phil Murphy.

The new law requires that any voter who voted by mail in 2016, the last presidential election, automatically be sent Vote-By-Mail ballots in all future elections unless they opt-out in writing.

Voters who do not opt-out in writing will not be able cast their vote in a voting machine.  They will be able to cast a provisional ballot if they show up at the polling location to vote and find that their name is not in the book.

The form, which we are posting below, should be printed out, signed and mailed or emailed by September 14…this Friday.

    Can this guy be any dumber? He is actually going to mail out forms that people have not requested. This will be a colossal waste of money between postage, staff time, materials, Etc. And we are going to have three and a half more years of this crap?

    another 7 1/2 years of it- hey, a pretty good sized majority of our fellow voters seem to love all this nonsense.. add it all up by the end of his first term, then double it, and there is our future.. at least some of our future- many more will be leaving, as soon as we/ they can.
