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.”

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
