The WaPo is confirming it now. If true, a new frontier of fraud has been opened.

What could go wrong with that?

How do voters without power get email?

...and Election Law allows this just how exactly?

NJ is for Obama, but you just know if this is allowed and somehow Romney won, the Democrats would freak and lose their “count every vote” chant.

I have no power, but a generator helps. They were holding early voting - at a single location per county. 650,000 people live in Monmouth County, with probably half of them without power, and a single early voting location. Unbelievable.

Only currently registered voters can use this method from an article I read.

In an unprecedented twist to Election Day in New Jersey, registered voters displaced by Hurricane Sandy will be able to cast ballots by fax or e-mail through Tuesday

I guess the Chinese will stay up a little later on their tuesday night.

What's unprecedented today becomes the norm tomorrow.

"What's unprecedented today becomes the norm tomorrow."

Just like our reliance on "precedent" in our law system. Not always a good thing.

I saw that. Also saw something about a person in NC voting four times (in person).

Any system can be gamed.

My BASIC is a little rusty...

10 PRINT “ELECTION 2012”
15 INPUT $VOTE
20 IF $VOTE=”Obama” GOTO 15
30 IF $VOTE=”Romney” THEN $VOTE=”Obama”
40 GOTO 15

As if Romney is a contender in NY or NJ. Let them have Obama. My concern is OH, VA and FL.

“You forgot a variable to increment the vote count ;) ... just seeing this sure brings back memories though :).”

Something more like...
IF $VOTE = “Obama” THEN OBAMACOUNT = OBAMACOUNT + 2

Maybe also something that asks how many times people want to vote?

I haven’t worked with BASIC in 24 years. It says something about the simplicity of a language that lets you throw something together after so much time has passed.

I can verify this. I got a call from someone last night saying they were calling from my congressman’s office and then reading a canned script to me of if I can’t get to my polling place, here are some of the alternatives I can do to vote, including having someone come and collect me to take me to vote.

I must add to this, that over 40 percent of the township I live in NJ is STILL without electricity. Many people are recharging their smart phones, and their iPads via their cars to find out what is going on with the outside world.

I will also add- I have seen no riots, yes, long lines for gasoline but nothing worse than a few birds flipped and a few names called. Everyone has been acting civil and looking after their neighbors, especially those that are elderly and those with young children.

PSE&G assures those without we will have electricity by Tuesday or Wednesday. I was lucky to get mine back about 30 hours after Sandy hit.
