Teaneck NJ, according to Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi, If you live in Teaneck and potentially surrounding communities in Bergen County please make sure you received a correct mail in ballot from the County Clerk before you vote and send it in. Apparently there were incorrect ballots sent to residents with Congressman Josh Gottheimer and Congressman Bill Pascrell on the ballot for districts they don’t even represent. In Teaneck alone it’s impacted over 7,000 voters. Check and make sure the candidates you are voting for actually are your district’s candidates. New ballots are being printed for those households identified as receiving a wrong ballot. If you are one of those households and have already sent in a ballot please be aware that ballot WILL NOT BE COUNTED. You must vote again when your new ballot comes. Universal mail in ballots…..what could possible go wrong in New Jersey?

Bergen County Board of Elections Says the County is Ready for the November Elections

Hackensack NJ, From Bergen County Board of Elections Chair, Jamie Sheehan-Willis:
I’ve seen so much misinformation on social media about Mail In Ballots, Provisional Ballots and the November Election. I wanted to clear some things up. I’m not interested in arguing about whether the Governor’s actions were right or wrong (if you know me, you know where I stand). I have a job to do as the Chairwoman of the Bergen County Board of Elections, so I must follow the Governor’s orders.
Bergen County certified the July 7th Primary on time, July 24th. While this might not seem like a big deal, it is. We received more ballots than any other county in the state – close to 150,000 MIB and Provisionals. Our previous record was 70,000 in 2018 (think Sheriff’s race/second ballot sent to MIB voters). Bergen was held up as a model to the other counties in the state. Seven out of 21 counties – a third of the state!! – could NOT certify on time. ALL with much smaller numbers than Bergen.

Paterson NJ,  Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal today announced voting fraud charges against Paterson City Councilman Michael Jackson, Councilman-Elect Alex Mendez, and two other men in connection with the May 12, 2020 special election in the City of Paterson.

All four men are charged with criminal conduct involving mail-in ballots during the election.  The investigation by the Attorney General’s Office of Public Integrity & Accountability (OPIA) began when the U.S. Postal Inspection Service alerted the Attorney General’s Office that hundreds of mail-in ballots were found in a mailbox in Paterson.  Numerous additional ballots were found in a mailbox in nearby Haledon.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all voting in May 12 elections in New Jersey was done by mail-in ballots.

Over 700 Ballots Rejected in connection with the May 12, 2020 Board of Education, Board of Education Budget, and Village Council General Election

by Boyd Loving

Ridgewood NJ, In response to an Open Public Records Act request I recently submitted to the Bergen County Clerk’s Office, I have just received a list containing the last name, first name, middle initial, and street address for every Ridgewood voter whose mail in ballot was REJECTED in connection with the May 12, 2020 Board of Education, Board of Education Budget, and Village Council General Election.

The list contains the names of 710 voters. That is, 710 of the ballots submitted for the aforementioned election were rejected/not counted. The reasons for rejection are not specified in the document I received. However, many appear to have been received after the specified cut off date of Thursday, May 14, 2020.If my calculations are correct, approximately 15% of the total ballots submitted were rejected/not counted. Wow! That’s alarming, to say the least. I do not know whether the County Clerk’s Office has a notification process in place for rejected ballots. Thus, some of these voters may not know that their ballot was rejected.
