TRENTON, NJ — Following today’s announcement by Governor Phil Murphy of a hybrid system for the upcoming July 7 Primary Election that will encourage residents to vote by mail while also providing options for safe in-person voting, NJDSC Chairman John Currie is releasing the following statement: 

“Governor Murphy continues to rely on data while making decisions and his announcement today regarding the Primary Election is another positive step forward for New Jersey’s voters. The Governor has given counties the autonomy to establish safe in-person voting sites, which I believe is critical to ensuring that all voters, especially those in urban areas, have a fair opportunity to exercise their franchise. I applaud the Governor for his continued leadership on not only this decision, but on his overall response to the COVID-19 crisis.” 

NJDSC plans to work with county party organizations to help inform voters of the changes to the Primary Election and increase turnout.
