Election workers discovered 1,666 uncounted New Jersey state ballots last week.

The ballots, from New Jersey’s Sussex County, were found in a “mislabeled” bin.

The primary election was on July 7.

What are the details?

Board of Elections Administrator Marge McCabe said that the ballots were subsequently counted and added to the state’s final tally on Saturday.

The ballots purportedly did not affect the outcome of the election “in any race for any office, Republican or Democrat.”

Officials added that as soon as the ballots were found, they notified the state Attorney General’s office.

“The Board of Elections is confident that all ballots received have been processed and the security of all the ballots has remained in place,” McCabe said.

According to the New Jersey Herald, authorities discovered the ballots in a “secured area” at the Board of Elections office, and have not explained how the ballots were misplaced to begin with.

The outlet reported, however, that the error was “perhaps the result of a unique election process caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, with a majority of county residents voting by mail and the Board of Elections temporarily relocating to count the votes.”

“According to a New Jersey Herald article two weeks after the primary, the county had received 28,062 mail-in ballots and an additional 2,126 provisional ballots for this year’s elections,” the Herald added.

Pending litigation

The snafu follows New Jersey Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy’s order mandating that New Jersey would be a universal mail-in election state.

Murphy unilaterally made the move, prompting the Republican National Committee and the Trump re-election campaign to file suit against the order.

On Friday, the campaign filed an amended complaint against New Jersey, insisting that the order violates the U.S. Constitution and federal statutes as they pertain to Election Day.

  1. Those ballots should be null and void! Who knows who in the hell has tampered with them. This type of crap is the democrats plan for the November election.

  2. Yep. That’s the deal. It is unbelievable as to how low they stoop. If they had something real to offer they would not have to get nasty and unscrupulous. They would not have to resort to all kinds of tricks and deception.

  3. 1,650 from one district, of one state. How many does that make if you figure in the entire country? Much like voting before a debate, just makes you wonder. I doubt the debates will solve or change anything either. This election will be a blivit (ten pound of poop in a five pound bag) no matter who wins. Pretty much you are either for Trump or against him, Biden/Harris has nothing to do with it. If trump wins again and the senate and house are not republican, we will endure four more years of collusion delusion and stalemate. (But they will still find a way to waste money.) The riots will not stop, those in them need to be arrested and pay for damages and those who support them (even in congress) should also face charges and make restitution. Over a billion in damages, this is crazy. And, ultimately it cost you and me.
