‘Buy the line’: Text messages in 2020 NJ primary raise questions about Bergen ballots

May 27, 2022

Professor Julia Sass Rubin quoted in this New Jersey Herald article following her research on New Jersey’s unique ballot configurations.

“For any political candidate in New Jersey, getting the so-called county line on the ballot is invaluable, all but assuring victory in the election.

But the line — which bundles candidates endorsed by county political organizations in one easy-to-spot location near the top of the ballot — can apparently have a monetary value, too.”
