BY JOHN WISNIEWSKI Friend, I wanted to make sure you knew that in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, there are options to make it easier for New Jerseyans to vote in this election. 

In this important election, if you are capable of voting, I strongly encourage you to do so.  You can find out the location of your polling place by texting the word “where” to 877-877 and following the reply prompts.

You can also vote by going to your County Clerk’s office today between 8:30 am and 4 pm and on Election Day between 8:30 am and 3 pm.  You can find the list of county clerk offices and information here: http://nj.gov/state/elections/voting-informatio...

On Election Day, if you are displaced as a result of the hurricane, you will be able to go to any open polling location in the state of New Jersey and cast a Provisional Ballot.

If you’ve been displaced as a result of the Hurricane, and cannot reach a polling place, you can vote by email or by fax by requesting a mail in ballot.  This is a process the state already uses for military personnel stationed overseas.  To vote electronically, voters may submit a mail-in ballot application either by e-mail or fax to their county clerk on or before 5:00PM on November 6th. Once an application is approved, the clerk will electronically send a ballot to the voter by either fax or e-mail in accordance with the voter’s preference. Voters must return their electronic ballot – by fax or email – no later than November 6, 2012, at 8 p.m.  Voters can download a mail-in ballot application at the following link: http://nj.gov/state/elections/voting-informatio....

If you have any questions or you feel that you’ve been denied access to vote, please contact the Democratic State Committee’s legal hotline at: 732-640-2250.

John Wisniewski is an assemblyman from the 19th Legislative District and chairman of the Democratic State Committee.
