New Jersey is making contingency plans for communities in the state’s 3,000 polling places whose regular voting machines were destroyed or are without power.
According to the Associated Press, Governor Christie announced that the application to apply for mail-in ballots has been extended until Friday and military trucks will be set up as polling sites in areas that have been affected. Some voters will be using paper ballots for voting.
Fox News reports that Department of Defense trucks will be parked at accessible polling places that have lost their electricity. Voters will use paper ballots. Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno said voters should expect to see the trucks with a National Guardsman and a big sign saying, “Vote Here.”
She urged people in areas hurt by Sandy to vote by mail-in ballot. Christie said voting would be “old school” again in the towns without power.
Here is an article from 2008 claiming that New Jersey’s voting machines were flawed:
New Jersey citizens will flock to the polls to fulfill their democratic duty, but they may have good reason to question the results tabulated by voting machines in some districts, according to a report compiled by computer science professor Andrew Appel ’81.
The report, titled “Insecurities and Inaccuracies of the Sequoia AVC Advantage 9.00 DRE Voting Machine,” is the first independent audit of the voting machine model currently used in New Jersey. It details the flaws of the Sequoia AVC Advantage voting machines and shows that the machines can easily be tampered with. These voting machines are used in 18 of New Jersey’s 21 counties.
