So much for the love affair some Democrats have with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. On Thursday vetoed a bill that would have allowed voters to submit ballots at polling places during a 15-day period prior to Election Day, the Star-Ledger reported. The bill was backed by Democrats, so naturally they are ticked off at Christie.
Christie called the proposed changes “hasty, counterproductive and less reliable” than the status quo. He also said the bill would cost the state $23 million up front and $2 million annually.
His veto angered Democrats, who sought to make changes to the state’s voting laws after Hurricane Sandy damaged many New Jersey polling locations and hindered the ability of voters in the state just days before last year’s election.
