Pre-Election House Party

Tony and Deidre Trama graciously opened their home (again) to the Cranford Democrats for a pre-election House Party.

Senator Nick Scutari, the Union County Democratic Chair (left in red), attended along with Freeholder Vice Chair Bette Jane Kowalski, Freeholder Rebecca Williams, Mayor Tom Hannen, who took a break from campaigning to stop by, and Commissioner Patrick Giblin. Also our amazing Democratic Committee. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and VERY MUCH grateful to the folks who took a couple hours before the party to knock on doors!

Mayor Hannen Brings Elections Board to Thursday Club

In order to ensure that Seniors have the latest information about Vote By Mail and other elections services, Mayor Tom Hannen brought Nicole Dirado, Administrator of the Union County Board of Elections, to the Thursday Club at the Cranford Community Center recently.

Nicole spoke about changes to the state’s Vote by Mail process, and the security of Union County’s voting systems. The week before, she spoke to the Cranford Democrats about voting.

Due to changes in state law, many New Jersey voters have received Vote by Mail ballots even though they had not requested them. If those voters had not “opted out” of voting by mail, they will not be able to use the voting machines on Election Day. They will have to cast a provisional ballot.
