Steinhardt: As Governor, Promoting Election Integrity a Top Priority
For Immediate Release
Phillipsburg, NJ – After a 2020 election season that saw myriad allegations of voter fraud, real or perceived, Republican candidate for Governor Doug Steinhardt released a three-point Voter Integrity Program to allay concerns and promote greater confidence in our Election Day processes.
“Democratic elections are the foundation of our Constitutional Republic,” said Steinhardt. “Phil Murphy has punted on voter integrity and left New Jersey voters feeling insecure and disenfranchised. As Governor, I will make election integrity a top priority of my Administration. We will follow the simple rule that every legal vote counts.”
Here’s my Voter Integrity Plan:
1. IN PERSON VOTING FOR EVERY ELECTION. No pandemic or political crisis, real or manufactured, will replace a person’s lawful ability to vote in person. If we can wait on eight-hour lines for the privilege of a driver’s license at Phil Murphy’s failing DMV, we can stand on line at our polling place and vote. As Governor, vote by mail, while an option, will never again replace a voter’s lawful right to vote in person.
2. VET OUR VOTER ROLLS. Voters who have passed away, moved to another state, or changed their name for legal reasons must have those updates reflected in poll books. As Governor, I will facilitate better communication between agencies and make cleaning up the State’s antiquated voter rolls a top priority.
3. NO FOREIGN MADE VOTING MACHINES. As we become increasingly concerned with foreign actors interfering in our domestic elections, my Administration will take definitive steps to secure the machines we use to conduct them. As Governor, I will demand that New Jersey voting machines are American made, using American parts and software.
