Better Ballots New Jersey


On Saturday a ballot initiative was launched by a coalition of organizations.  This was not a usual ballot initiative.  This is a coalition formed to change the primary ballot in New Jersey.  Some of you may know, the ballot in New Jersey is unique, no other state in the country uses the ballot system used in NJ.  There is a reason the ballot in NJ is an issue and there is a group formed called “Better Ballots New Jersey.”  That reason is the primary ballot in New Jersey discourages participation and insures those in power remain in power.  This topic deserves discussion and will only grow over the coming months.  A good start to understanding the problems with the ballot is to watch the videos and read the information about the ballot at the “Better Ballots New Jersey,” website (link below).  The coalition has been developed through the “Good Government Coalition of New Jersey.”
