New Jersey Investigates Double Voting That May Have Flipped Local Race

  • Several municipalities in Monmouth County, located on the coast of central New Jersey, experienced tabulation problems that were apparently only discovered two months after the midterm elections as part of Board of Elections investigation into an unrelated issue, the New Jersey Globe reported earlier this month.
  • However, the news blog followed up with another report saying county officials were notified about the voting machine issues in November.
  • While multiple towns were affected, one local race in particular, the contest for Ocean Township Board of Education, was close enough where double voting could flip the results.
