The latest demonstration of staggering candidate incompetence comes from North Bergen, NJ, where the head of an insurgent slate of township commissioners was disqualified from the general election ballot because he registered to vote one half-hour after submitting petition signatures to run for the township commission. This circumstance meant that the candidate circulated petitions to run for office, without being registered to vote when he collected the signatures.
Can't anybody here play this game?
Such incompetence in managing one's own eligibility to run for township office is a strong indication of the level of service that person would provide if he were to actually get elected. Amateur hour is over.
