Bergen County election officials say they don’t plan to make further changes to their list of revised polling stations ahead of tomorrow’s general election.
The news comes after officials were able to scrap plans for roughly 30 revised polling stations after power was restored to the original polling areas, Richard Miller, a commissioner with the Bergen County Board of Elections, told PolitickerNJ.
There are between 70 and 75 revised stations slated to be opened tomorrow to cater to voters whose regular polling areas lost power from the storm, Miller said. The number of revised polling areas is down from about 110 the prior day.
The decision was made to not alter any other locations, regardless of whether power is restored to the original polling place, so that there’s no additional confusion about where voters should go to cast their ballots.
With the exception of Moonachie voters, residents forced to use revised polling stations in the wake of the storm will not be forced to travel too far, Miller said.
“We were able to keep folks in the same town,” he said, adding that Moonachie’s revised polling area was the only one moved outside of the community.
Voters in Moonachie will cast their ballot at the Bergen Vocational School on Route 46 near Teterboro Airport.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
