Important FairTax Information for New Jersey Primary Voters
Thursday, May 31, 2012 • 12:00am
The Primary Election will take place in New Jersey on Tuesday, June 5, 2012. We have valuable information for you about where the U.S. Senate candidates from New Jersey stand on the FairTax.
On the Republican side we have:
Joe Rullo, www.rulloforsenate.com, who is an unconditional FairTax supporter. Joe Rullo has pledged to co-sponsor the FairTax if elected to the Senate. Joe Rullo's web site reflects that position. Joe Rullo has pledged to run for only one term and contends that this pledge will keep him from bowing to pressure from the leadership and to the pressures of reelection. Joe Rullo believes that he then would be free to be an independent voice and co-sponsor the FairTax.
Bader Qarmout, www.bgq4nj.com, who has said he is open to the FairTax or the Flat Tax, but has not committed to the FairTax.
Joe Kyrillos, www.joekyrillos.com, who has been briefed but has not committed to the FairTax.
On the Democratic side we have:
Robert Menendez, www.menendezfornj.com. Menendez' staff has been briefed, but Menendez has not committed to the FairTax. Menendez has no opposition in the Democratic Party.
We do not know the positions of the minor party candidates, but they will not be on the primary ballot.
If you are a registered Republican or an unaffiliated voter, you can vote in the Republican primary. If you are a registered Democrat, it is too late for you to change your affiliation to vote in the Republican primary. That deadline was 55 days before the primary election. You can un-affiliate or re-affiliate, if you wish, now in time for the next primary election.
If you have not registered to vote, you need to do so for the next election. To vote, you must be a US citizen, 18 years or older by the time of the election, a resident of your county for 30 days and not disqualified. You must register no later than 21 days before the next election. You can register, among other places, with your municipal or county clerk.
We hope this information will help you in exercising your most important right as an American citizen.
