Congressman Andy Kim Statement on Granting of Emergency Injunctive Relief Ending the County Line System in New Jersey

MOORESTOWN N.J. – Today, Congressman Andy Kim (D-NJ) released the following statement after U.S. District Judge Zahid Quraishi granted emergency injunctive relief, effectively ending the “County Line” system in New Jersey.

“Today's decision is a victory for a fairer, more democratic politics in New Jersey. It's a victory built from the incredible grassroots work of activists across our state who saw an undemocratic system marginalizing the voices of voters, and worked tirelessly to fix it,” said Congressman Kim. “While fixing this unfair ballot system is a massive step forward towards perfecting our democracy, there is still work to be done. Both in New Jersey and nationwide, we need to regain the trust of the voters we serve. I will continue to work tirelessly to restore and protect voting rights, address the scourge of big money in our politics, and make our government more accessible and accountable to everyday New Jerseyans.”
