Bloomfield residents will be able to vote Tuesday at their regular polling place, officials announced Sunday.
Power has been restored to Demarest Elementary, Brookdale Elementary and Carteret Elementary schools, and residents assigned to polling places there will be able to vote at those locations, according to Bloomfield Clerk Louise Palagano. All other regular polling places will also be open Tuesday.
New Jersey residents displaced by Hurricane Sandy and staying in a different part of the state can go to a nearby polling place Tuesday to vote via provisional ballot.
Essex County residents can cast an early vote via vote-by-mail ballot at the county Clerk's Office (Room 247, Essex County Hall of Records, 465 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Newark). The clerk's office will be open Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Monday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the latest time allowed by state law. The deadline to vote-by-mail ballot is Monday 3 p.m.
Displaced voters can also vote electronically by submitting a mail-in ballot application by email or face to their county clerk, according to the League of Women Voters. Once an application is approved, the clerk will electronically send a ballot to the voter via fax or email, in accordance with the voter's preference. Voters must return their electronic ballot by fax or email no later than Tuesday 8 p.m.
Polls will be open on Election Day from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
