New Jersey Voters Who Want to Vote in Major Party Primaries, but who Don’t Want to be Party Members, Obtain Extension of Time to File Their First Brief

On March 5, 2014, some New Jersey voters who want to vote in major party primaries, but who don’t want to be listed as party members, even for one day, filed a lawsuit, asserting that their right to vote is being denied. On May 9 the state filed a brief, asking that the lawsuit be dismissed.

Plaintiffs have now obtained an extension of time in which to file their first brief. It was to have been filed May 19, but the new deadline is July 3. The case is in U.S. District Court, and is Balsam v Guadagno, 2:14cv-1388.
