New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy confirmed that the state will pursue a “hybrid model” for the November election.
“In the general election, it doesn’t matter what party you’re in, everybody gets a ballot. So we’re going to have a hybrid model in November,” Murphy said on CNN’s “New Day.”
It will be up to voters to decide if they would like to vote by mail or in person, according to Murphy.
New Jersey used a similar model for its primary election on July 7. “It was a success. Not perfect, but overwhelmingly a success,” he said.
In the New Jersey city of Paterson, four people, including a city councilman, were charged with voting fraud related to the May 12 municipal election.
“I’m pretty sure that we have a higher probability of being hit by lightning than we do uncovering voter fraud,” Murphy said.
