ACLU spokeswoman Katie Wang says the group has had about 25 complaints from voters who requested email ballots but say they have not received them.

An Essex County election official could not immediately be reached for comment.

The email ballots are usually available only to New Jersey residents living overseas and members of the military. But the state decided Saturday to let voters displaced by Superstorm Sandy use them as well.

Hudson County election officials say they're being flooded with requests for them by people who were not displaced.
