New York and New Jersey election board officials must decide on whether additional provisional voting will be needed according to CBS News.
Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast Monday and has caused great damage to New York and New Jersey and may deter voters from going to the polls this year.
New York county election board officials will ask the New York State Board of Elections to allow polls to stay open if voter turnout is less than 25%. New York has already relocated 60 polling sites due to Sandy. And in an effort to allow people to vote, some polling stations in New York are going to be by portable generators. (CNN News)
New Jersey has already made voting changes. New Jersey voters can fax and cast a provisional ballot at any polling area. Residents of New Jersey are also considered "overseas" and may apply for an absentee ballot until 5 p.m. Election Day (CBS News).
