Lawsuit seeks to change design of NJ ballots, claims they seem to give advantage to party favorites

New Jersey’s primary election was held on Tuesday, and there is a renewed focus on the design of the ballots themselves.

Critics say that the design is unfair to any candidate not connected to powerful political parties.

A study by Professor Julia Rubin, of the Bloustein School at Rutgers University, found that New Jersey is the only state in the nation with ballots like this – where party bosses actually have the power to design a ballot that gives the upper hand.
