In June, the New Jersey legislature passed AB 4613, which lets any voter cast a vote during the weeks before election day, provides for automatic registration for people who apply for drivers licenses unless they opt out, and makes it possible for 17-year-olds to pre-register.
New Jersey gives Governors a long period in which to decide whether to sign, veto, or amend bills. Governor Chris Christie must decide whether to approve this bill by August 13, if the legislature is in session that day. But if the legislature is not in session that day, he can wait until it is in session. No one knows yet whether the legislature will be in session that day.
