New Jersey Senate fails to override Gov. Chris Christie's veto of early voting
The New Jersey Senate has failed in its effort to override Gov. Chris Christie's veto of a bill to allow in-person early voting.
The Senate voted 24-16 on Thursday in favor of the override, which fell three votes short.
The bill would have set up early voting at up to seven locations in each county during a two-week period before election days, but Christie said an estimated $25 million cost in the first year would have made it too expensive. He vetoed the measure last month.
New Jersey does offer mail-in ballots.
