Democratic Party Chairman Jerry Green snidely dismissed a controversial videotape as fake, but in a whiplash the original turned up online. The net effect appeared to be embarrassment (one of his most-used words) not only for the chairman, but for his candidates in Tuesday's primary.
But seriously folks, it is very important that all registered Democrats (13,105 at last count) come out and vote. I believe the unaffiliated voters (8,073) can declare at the polls if it is the voter's first primary. The New Jersey Department of State's Division of Elections has answers to many questions about voting.
Look at your sample ballot. You can choose by rows, not just columns. For instance, four people are running for Member of the House of Representatives. You can pick any one. Two people are running for council in my ward and district and I can pick either one. In the First Ward and in the Third Ward, there are three Democratic candidates each. With that said, you can always vote by slate. See the primary slates here.
It is against the law to intimidate voters or campaign inside the polls or within the 100-foot mark outside the polls. Vote your conscience and report any pressure tactics to election officials.
