Hunterdon County Clerk / Registrar of Deeds
DEPUTY COUNTY CLERK
Position statements by six candidates for governor are now available for review on the website of the County Clerks as well as the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) and the New Jersey Division of Elections.
Under the law, gubernatorial candidates in the general election can post statements up to 500 words about their candidacies to guide voters.
This year, Republican nominee Kimberly Guadagno, Democratic nominee Phil Murphy, Libertarian candidate Peter Rohrman, Green Party candidate Seth Kaper-Dale and Independent candidates Gina Genovese and Vincent Ross all have submitted statements to ELEC.
In addition to my website the statements are available for viewing in English, Spanish, Korean and Gujarati at http://www.elec.state.nj.us/publicinformation/gub_candidate_statements2017.htm and the website of the State Division of Elections at http://www.nj.gov/state/elections/election-information-archive-2017.html#general.
Under legislation (A-4875/ S-1996) recommended by ELEC and the Constitutional Officers Association of New Jersey, hundreds of thousands of dollars now will be saved each gubernatorial election year because the statements no longer are being printed on paper and mailed to voters. During the 2013 election, the printed statements and mailing costs totaled $600,000. Governor Chris Christie signed the new law August 21, 2017.
