The US Military will run the elections in New Jersey

 In the wake of the damage brought to the northeastern United States, particularly New Jersey, and growing concerns not only about how to get the city back up and running and the election just days away, the U.S. military is stepping up. Most polling areas that are expected to be without power will be replaced by the Department of Defense providing military trucks and paper ballots in some of these locations.

The Associated Press reports,

New Jersey will deploy military trucks to serve as polling places on Election Day in storm-battered communities, the state secretary of the state announced Thursday during a visit to this flood-ravaged town. The state is also extending the deadline on mail-in ballots.

Department of Defense trucks will be parked at regular polling places that have lost power, as long as the sites are still accessible. Paper ballots will be used.

Republican Secretary of State and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno said voters will find “a DOD truck with a well-situated National Guardsman and a big sign saying, “Vote Here.”
