Legislation authored by Senator Anthony Bucco allowing the Morris County Freeholders to save taxpayers $400,000 by streamlining the administration of county elections has been approved by the Senate.

The legislation, S-1856, enables the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders, as well as the governing bodies in other Class II counties, to enter into a three year pilot program that eliminates the county office of superintendent and deputy superintendent of elections.

“These offices appear to be redundant and wasteful,” said Bucco (R- Morris). “There are ample resources in place in county courthouses to administer elections fairly and efficiently without this additional layer of bureaucracy. At a time of tight budgets and limited financial resources, we can save Morris County taxpayers $400,000 by eliminating just those two offices. We ought to give it a try.”

Morris and Camden Counties are considered “Class II” counties. If enacted, the legislation would require counties opting into the program to re-evaluate their participation at the end of three years.

The bill now heads to Governor Christie.
