Gov. Chris Christie voted soon after he got electricity that went out during Superstorm Sandy back at his home.

Speaking to reporters after marking his ballot, Christie said his home is one of the five worst for damage in Mendham. He says he lost at least 20 trees.

The governor says he's amazed at how resilient people are and thinks there's tremendous interest in the election.

The state has contingency plans so voters displaced by the storm can cast their ballots.

Christie also voiced concerns about an approaching nor'easter. That storm has led to a mandatory evacuation order for low-lying waterfront homes in Brick Township.

The storm threatens to bring snow to parts of New Jersey, where 582,024 homes and businesses still don't have electricity.
