New Jersey Globe Notes that Registration in New Jersey Minor Parties has Doubled in Last 18 Months

Ballot Access News

The New Jersey Globe, a web newsletter about New Jersey politics and government, here notes that registration into unqualified parties in New Jersey has doubled in the last 18 months, and is now over 40,000. The only reason unqualified parties in New Jersey have any registered members is due to a winning lawsuit won in 2001. Before the state court opinion in Council of Alternative Political Parties v State, all voters were forced to register Democratic, Republican, or independent.
