Stronger voter record-keeping needed, says Christie

SOUTH AMBOY – Gov. Chris Christie says he’s working with the state Legislature for stronger voter record keeping systems to curb any alleged voter fraud in New Jersey.

The governor was asked today at his town-hall style meeting where he stood on voter ID laws. Christie didn’t say specifically whether he supports voter ID laws, but said he wants to work with the Legislature to strengthen the state’s voter record system.

“I don’t think anybody should be permitted to vote who isn’t legally eligible,” he said.

“We need to deal with this is in an upfront and direct way,” he said, providing scant details on how to correct any perceived problems with the state’s voting system.

“I’m going to try to work with the Legislature to come to an agreement,” he said.
