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.

County Clerk Reminds Voters about the New Vote by Mail Law which will affect the November General Election

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is reminding voters that a new law signed by Governor Phil Murphy in August dramatically changed the Vote by Mail rules in New Jersey. These changes are effective immediately and will impact the November General Election.

The new law mandates that all voters who voted by mail in the 2016 General Election be sent a Mail-In Ballot for the 2018 General Election, even if they did not request one. If these voters do not want to receive a 2018 General Election Mail-In Ballot, they must notify the County Clerk in writing to opt out.

“All of these 2016 Mail-In Ballot voters have been sent a letter from the County Clerk’s Office advising of this change, so it is important that voters be on the lookout for this letter,” said Clerk Hanlon.

September School Board Elections Rescheduled For October 2

In New Jersey we have regularly scheduled “Special Elections” and as of today we have September Special Elections that are held in October.  It’s all very confusing, by design by the evil geniuses in Trenton, who want to suppress voter participation and still call what happens here “democratic.”

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon announced today that date of the September Special School Board elections originally scheduled for September 25 has been changed to October 2.

The New Jersey State Department of Education made the change due to the fact that the second day of Sukkot, a Jewish holiday, falls on September 25. Read the rest of this entry »

Hanlon certifies Curley’s nominating petition

Disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley survived a challenge to his nominating petitions for reelection, according to a letter from Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon dated June 13, which was obtained by MMM via OPRA request.

After noticing irregularities in the Curley petitions, Monmouth County Republican Chairman, Sheriff Shaun Golden, submitted a formal challenge to the petitions requesting that Hanlon’s staff review the signatures before certifying Curley’s candidacy for Freeholder as an Independent.

Hanlon found that over 120 signatures were invalid because the signers were not registered to vote in Monmouth County or the signature on the petition did not match the signature in the state voter records.  The censured freeholder still has over 100 valid signatures, making his overall petition valid.
