Christie: Voting Went Well Enough After Sandy

Gov. Chris Christie says New Jersey’s on-the-fly accommodations for voters displaced by the storm mostly worked but are worth studying further.

Speaking at a briefing Wednesday in Harvey Cedars, Christie said election reported problems were scattered.

Some voting-rights advocates say New Jersey made some missteps as it tried to modify voting procedures to allow those displaced by last week’s storm to cast ballots.

Those voters were given options to vote in advance at county clerks’ offices, to vote by email or fax or to fill out provisional ballots in any polling place in the state.

State elections officials say there will not be a tally until next week of how many people used each option.

Some directives for the new ways to vote changed as late as Tuesday.
