NJDSC Condemns Bramnick’s Disinformation Campaign About Voting in 2020 General Election
Republican Minority Leader’s False Tweet Claims State Has Banned In-Person Voting
TRENTON, NJ — Republican Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick is blatantly spreading disinformation about voting in the 2020 General Election, claiming in a tweet today that in-person voting is “banned” in the state. This is absolutely false — in-person voting is allowed in this election and each county is required to establish at least one polling place in every municipality in the state, where voters will be able to cast a provisional ballot or drop off their Vote by Mail ballot. NJDSC is sounding the alarm on Bramnick’s disinformation campaign and calling on the Republican to stop adopting Trumpian talking points and lying about voting.
“Jon Bramnick obviously knows that what he’s saying about in-person voting is absolutely false, but that isn’t stopping him from spreading misinformation and trying to undermine faith in the state’s election system,” said NJDSC Executive Director Saily Avelenda. “The truth is that Governor Murphy’s decision to shift to a hybrid voting model to protect public health during the pandemic is a success, with almost 3 million votes already cast and systems in place to allow residents to continue exercising their right to vote in a safe and secure manner. Assemblyman Bramnick’s lie shows he’s no different than the Trump campaign and Republicans in Trenton and Washington who continue to try to suppress the vote. We will not allow them to succeed and will continue working to make every voice heard in this critical election.”
