NJ Division of Elections database has major issues

The NJ Division of Elections and county clerks struggled to inform voters of polling locations as their database failed to properly function.

At 10:37 AM this morning, less than 24 hours before polling places open for state and county elections, the NJ Division of Elections and county clerks struggled to inform inquiring voters of polling locations as their database failed to properly function.  

According to Nate Fishman, Operations Director for the Kaper-Dale for Governor Campaign, "I was on the phone for 20 minutes in order to confirm our Lt. Governor candidate's polling place due to a failing system.  Will voters be as perseverant as I was?  I doubt it."

While Fishman did not go as far as to claim it was deliberate sabotage, he did say it was only one more way voters were being deprived of vital information on an unfair playing field.

"In August the dominant parties eliminated the candidate statement being mailed to voters, this means the information is only available on the county clerks' websites or upon request by voters.  The two-party mafia is limiting democracy in order to maintain its stranglehold on NJ", Green Party candidate for Governor Seth-Kaper-Dale stated.

"Our Last Are First campaign is reaching out to the 61% of registered voters who did not come out to vote in the 2013 gubernatorial election.  These are also the people most likely to inquire about their polling places but that information is not forthcoming," the candidate added.

"Nevertheless, we have spoken to so many people around the state in our grassroots effort who are tired of the status quo that we are confident hope will triumph over confusion in tomorrow's election," Kaper-Dale concluded.
