ACLU-NJ Senior Staff Attorney Alexander Shalom will answer questions, and ACLU-NJ Public Policy Director Ari Rosmarin will moderate.


Ballot Question 1 is a key part of creating real bail reform that focuses on a defendant’s risk to society rather than a defendant’s ability to afford bail. When implemented, this will result in thousands fewer people being detained pretrial.

The reforms also give New Jersey real speedy-trial protection for the first time in its history.

The passage of Ballot Question 1 would allow a historic, bi-partisan bail reform package signed into law this summer by Governor Christie to go into effect, which is why the ACLU-NJ supports the question.
