Carl Lewis Can’t Appear on New Jersey Ballot, Official Says

Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis can’t appear on the general election ballot for New Jersey’s state senate because he hasn’t met residency requirements, the state’s top elections official said.

Absent a decision from a court to the contrary, Lewis wasn’t a resident of the state for the constitutionally required four years prior to the general election in November, Secretary of State Kimberly Guadagno said yesterday in a letter to three county clerks in the state’s eighth legislative district.
