The Democracy Act will help modernize our voting system and strengthen our democracy. If signed by Governor Christie, the law will establish automatic voter registration for eligible voters, institute online registration and in-person early voting in every county, and make it easier for our armed service members to vote while abroad, all while cracking down on voter fraud.
The New Jersey legislature has already passed the bill and sent it to Governor Christie.
