WESTWOOD – Gov. Chris Christie says he’s heard little in the way of voters having trouble casting their ballots today and urged residents to get out and vote.
The governor spoke Tuesday at Westwood Elementary School, telling reporters that out of the 3,000 polling sites in the state that only 100 were compromised by Hurricane Sandy. He called it a “great testimony” to the lieutenant governor that the state was able to get prepared for Election Day immediately following the storm and urged everyone to “get off your butt” and vote.
“If you don’t know where to vote, call your town hall and ask them where to vote,” he said, adding that residents in New Jersey can text “WHERE” to 877877 to find their polling place.
The governor said the only problems he’s heard so far is that there’s been a shortage of voting machines in Hoboken.
“It’s a national election, it’s important to vote,” he said. “Please make sure you go out and vote.”

"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
