N.J. bill on early voting at polls is approved

Posted: March 23, 2013

New Jersey legislators have adopted a bill that would allow early voting at polling places.

The Assembly passed the bill by a 46-31 vote on Thursday. It now heads to Gov. Christie. In both legislative chambers, the bill had the support of Democrats and opposition from Republicans.

It would allow voting in three to seven locations in each county for five weeks before elections.

Sponsors say the measure would give voters a useful third option besides voting by mail, or in person on Election Day. Thirty-two other states have in-person early voting. - AP
