An election worker in New Jersey has been caught on video allowing a non-citizen to fill out a ballot — an illegal action tat is particularly concerning given the closeness of the governor’s race there.

In the video posted late Wednesday by Project Veritas, the election worker tells the non-citizen, “I’ll let you fill out completely a ballot now. Whether or not it’s going to count, I don’t know.”

“Remember, we were allowing anyone to come in,” the worker says, later adding “Listen, we’ll let you do it [fill out a ballot].”

James O’Keefe said the video was particularly alarming.

“Project Veritas released a new video today exposing malfeasance that took place in New Jersey’s gubernatorial election, where an election worker was willing to provide a ballot to a Veritas journalist disguised as a non-citizen and non-registered voter,” he said.

“In a governor’s race that has been called with only about a one percentage point difference separating the candidates, this behavior is at the very least questionable. The voters in New Jersey deserve to know how many locations were allowing such a practice to fester,” he added.

Liberal media outlets have called the governor’s race for pro-abortion Governor Phil Murphy, but Jack Ciattarelli’s campaign says the call is premature: “With the candidates separated by a fraction of a percent out of 2.4M ballots cast, it’s irresponsible of the media to make this call when the New Jersey Secretary of State doesn’t even know how many ballots are left to be counted.”

With 88% of the ballots counted, Murphy has a mere 1.4% lead over Ciattarelli.
