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.”
