To the Editor:

Early voting expands democracy, respects voters and brings greater accountability to our system of voting in New Jersey. Last year, the democratic process was compromised by Hurricane Sandy, causing some localities to put last-minute measures into place, which accounted for nearly 250,000 less votes than the last presidential cycle. This bill will give New Jerseyans 15 more days to vote, which increases voter participation and takes into consideration the busy lives, job schedules and responsibilities of our community members. Working Families United for New Jersey, Inc. (WFUNJ) calls on Gov. Christie to stand up for democracy and sign this very important legislation.

Working Families United for New Jersey, Inc. is a statewide grassroots coalition consisting of labor, religious, community, civil rights, student, women and retirees groups collectively committed to building a better life for all working families in New Jersey.

We believe social and economic justice, in the workplace and our communities, are achieved by promoting good jobs, green jobs, quality affordable health care, workers’ rights and a state budget which reflects the economic priorities of the middle class. We recognize the value of public safety and emergency services, as well as many essential programs including special-needs student education, women’s health care services, and tax relief for middle-income families. We believe in policies that support middle-class families and lift up our economy simultaneously.

Charles Hall Jr.
Chairman of Working Families
United for New Jersey
