Assembly Advances Legislation to Allow Police to be Present at Certain Polling Places

On Thursday, the Assembly favorably reported S-2912 which permits police officers to be present at senior residential centers or schools that are used as polling places. The legislation also requires school districts to establish election day security plans.
This legislation provides a carve out to S-3595, now P.L. 2021 459, which passed the legislature last session and was signed into law by Governor Murphy.
 The League supports this commonsense measure that permits police in polling places. Since it was amended in the Assembly Oversight, Reform and Federal Relations Committee it needs to return to the Senate for concurrence before it is sent to the Governor for consideration.
