A newcomer with several ‘no’ votes

A man named Travis, who came to the Belmar Library to vote, accompanied by his two young children, said he voted today because he recently moved and indicated he couldn’t find his ballot. His most important reason to vote: the ballot measures, specifically Amendments 67 and 68. They were more important to him than even the Senate race, he said.

Travis commented that he talked about the election recently with family members and joked that the solution is to just vote “no” on everything … including the candidates.
