Voters in New York and New Jersey affected by superstorm Sandy will be permitted to vote at any polling place in their respective states using a provisional ballot.
“Just because you’re displaced doesn’t mean you should be disenfranchised,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday, a day before Americans went to the polls to pick their next president.
Some polling places were completely unusable due to the storm, and some voters had sought shelter far from their polling places.
President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney held final campaign rallies in key states on Monday and appeared on Monday Night Football.
Polls show Obama, a Democrat, and Romney, a Republican, in a tight race. The Jewish vote was being seen as especially important in swing states, especially Florida.
