TRENTON – More than 125 Deputy Attorneys General (DAsG) were assigned throughout the state of New Jersey on Election Day, announced Attorney Gerneral Gurbir S. Grewal.
The move helped to ensure a fair and smooth-running election, and to assist county election officials in resolving any emergent voting-related legal matters, they said.
According to Attorney General Grewal, DAsG from the Division of Law were stationed in each of the state’s 21 counties to handle any court applications, and to provide timely legal advice to County Superintendents of Election and Boards of Election. They were on duty from the time the polls opened at 6 a.m. until they closed at 8 p.m.
“The reason we assign DAsG throughout the state is to help ensure the integrity of the election process, to safeguard the voting rights of all persons who are eligible to vote, and to assist county election officials in resolving any voting-related legal issues that might arise,” said Attorney General Grewal. ”Voting is one of the bedrocks of our democracy, and we take seriously our role in helping to make sure that election processes in every county are fair, and that any voting-related legal matters are resolved promptly and even-handedly.”
