New Jersey Election contest: Michael Strumolo and Vincent Ferraro vs. Robert J. Peluso and Louis Valori 2013-06 Parsippany municipal primary 2013-07 Election contest Candidates Michael Strumolo and Vincent Ferrara each filed petitions with Superior Court Assignment Judge Thomas Weisenbeck in Morristown contesting the results of the June 4, 2013 Parsippany Town Council primary, which named Robert Peluso and Louis Valori as winners. Several witnesses testified that County Clerk candidate James Vigilante gave them mail-in ballots to certify, or sign and turn in. Each of the people testified that Vigilante gave them a stack of votes, and that they never met any of the voters. Strumolo's attorney Brian Aloia told the court that Vigilante could have distributed as many as 50 votes in that fashion. Election laws prohibit candidates from handling mail-in ballots and also require that a mail-in ballot submitted on behalf of another voter must be signed by whoever submits it. The person submitting the ballot also must have received it directly from the voter. Ferrara said in his petition that enough illegal votes were accepted to change the outcome of the election. His petition cites the names of three people who allegedly voted twice by mail-in ballot and the names of 71 other people he believes improperly cast mail-in ballots. “The 77 illegal votes that were received ... were sufficient to change the outcome of the election. As a result, the will of the electorate either is not discernible or has been frustrated by the widespread acceptance of illegal and/or fraudulent votes,” Judge dismissed the challenge, but said there was "significant cause for concern" about the conduct of James Vigilante. Three women testified that Vigilante called them to his home office to pick up and sign for mail-in ballots that he had there, and later drove them to the board of elections office to deliver the ballots. Under state election law, candidates are not allowed to possess or handle mail-in ballots. The law also says the person submitting the ballot must also have received it directly from the voter. However, Vigilante couldn't have impacted enough ballots to change the outcome of the vote, Weisenbeck said http://www.nj.com/morris/index.ssf/2013/08/testimony_will_expose_illegal_parsipp... http://patch.com/new-jersey/parsippany/primary-candidates-allege-voter-fraud-hea... http://www.nj.com/morris/index.ssf/2013/09/after_alleged_voter_fraud_judge_wants...
