Despite the weather, voter turnout in Hoboken this morning was reportedly robust, however staffing issues caused lines and confusion, according to reports form the polls.
The Hoboken High School Polling Place (Wards 3-5 & 3-7) was reportedly in disarray as the first voters arrived. In Wards 3-5, the first votes of the election were voted entirely via provisional ballot, not because of a lack of electricity, but rather because the voter rolls didn’t arrive until 7:30 a.m. Poll workers in the ward reportedly told voters they required an ID in order to vote.
In 3-7, a single poll worker was reportedly left to review the rolls for the entire district, contributing to long lines.
