|New Jersey||Steve Fulop campaign||2013-05||Jersey City municipal||Absentee/mail||Ballot tampering||The re-election campaign of Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy accused rival City Councilman Steve Fulop’s campaign of sending out mail-in ballot applications that use a Fulop P.O. box, not the Hudson County clerk, as a return address. “Fulop is attempting to trick people into sending their ballots to the wrong place in order to suppress the vote in Ward F a ward Fulop knows he will lose,” says Jermaine Robinson, Healy’s Ward F council hopeful. New Jersey’s administrative code reads that the return address on mail-in ballot applications “shall not be altered or changed by any person or entity.” Fulop’s campaign insists it has the legal right to send out the applications with its address on it. A state Division of Elections spokesman referred comment to Hudson County Clerk Barbara Netchert. The state Election Law Enforcement Commission declined to comment. Netchert responded with a statement that she issued on Friday urging voters to use the county’s official application for mail-in ballots.||http://www.nj.com/jjournal-news/index.ssf/2013/05/jersey_city_mayors_re-election...|
