N.J.’s Christie Opens Offices for Early Voting; Paper Ballots Ready
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Saturday said he has ordered county clerks to open their offices on Saturday and Sunday to allow early voting for residents affected by superstorm Sandy.
The storm devastated the eastern part of the state, leaving at least 22 dead and more than 1 million customers still without power just three days before the presidential election on Nov 6.
Christie said New Jersey residents could get their early voting done over the weekend at the county clerk’s office because he ordered the offices to stay open in every county in the state over the weekend.
“Time on your hands? Tired of cleaning stuff up? Go there in person, you’ll get a ballot, you vote and hand it in and you’re done,” he said in a press briefing from the town of Little Ferry.
