NJ Won’t Use Military Trucks at Polling Places

New Jersey election officials have decided they will not need to use military trucks as makeshift polling places Tuesday.

Election officials say Superstorm Sandy had knocked out about 900 polling places in one way or another. But they say power has come back to some and in other cases new locations have been arranged.

As of Monday afternoon, election officials said fewer than 100 polling locations remained to be worked out. They expect in some of those cases power will be back and they won’t need alternative locations.

The state had said last week they would park National Guard trucks near out-of-power polling places and have residents cast paper ballots at them. But that option is now off the table.
