A bill that would make it easier to vote by mail in New Jersey is on its way to the full Senate after clearing a Senate panel.
The Gloucester County Times reports the legislation cleared the Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism & Historic Preservation Committee.
To put it simply, the new legislation would change the way voters are able to request a mail-in ballot for future elections. The Gloucester County Times says the legislation would also eliminate the current option in New Jersey, where voters can request a mail-in ballot for each election that occurs in a calendar year.
The bill is sponsored by Senator Jim Beach, D-Voorhees.
