A list of the alternative polling places will be issued as it becomes available.

“Voting in Monmouth County will proceed despite the best efforts of Hurricane Sandy,” Monmouth County Clerk M. Claire French said in the release. “There are 425,635 registered voters in Monmouth County, and we are making sure everybody has the opportunity to cast their vote in the wake of the storm.”

The following is the list of the 23 municipalities with unchanged polling stations:

  • Allenhurst
  • Allentown

  • Deal
  • Englishtown
  • Farmingdale
  • Freehold Borough
  • Interlaken

  • Neptune City
  • Red Bank
  • Roosevelt
  • Sea Girt
  • Shrewsbury Borough
  • Shrewsbury Township
  • Spring Lake
  • Spring Lake Heights
  • Wall Township
  • West Long Branch

French stressed that any resident who is a registered voter can cast a ballot in person through Monday at the Board of Elections Office, 300 Halls Mill Road, Freehold. The office is open Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

To streamline the in-person registration process, voters can go online and download and complete the Vote By Mail Application, which is also necessary for voting in person.

The list of alternate voting locations will be updated as information becomes available. Voters should check the Monmouth County website at visitmonmouth.com and click on the County Clerk’s Election Division page. Voters may also contact their local municipal clerk for voting information.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, Governor Christie has made some important changes that that may make it easier for you to vote. • You can go vote early at your County Clerk today. Here's a list of County Clerk locations: http://nj.gov/state/elections/voting-information-local-officials.html.1 • Residents who want to vote electronically can submit a mail-in ballot application either by e-mail or fax to their county clerk (you'll need to call them to find out their email address). Once the application is approved, the clerk will electronically send a ballot back to the voter also by e-mail or fax. Voters must return the ballot electronically by 8 p.m. on Nov. 6. Applications for mail-in ballots can be found here: http://nj.gov/state/elections/voting-information-vote-by-mail.html. Visitors to the website should ignore messages saying applications cannot be faxed or e-mailed. For details, call your County Clerk: http://nj.gov/state/elections/voting-information-local-officials.html.2 • If you can't get to your normal polling place, you can cast a provisional ballot in person on Tuesday in a county other than the one that you're registered in.3 Further information is available by calling the following toll-free number: 1-877-NJVOTER (1-877-658-6837).

"To streamline the in-person registration process, voters can go online and download and complete the Vote By Mail Application, which is also necessary for voting in person." What does this meal? I have to download a Vote By Mail application in order to vote in person...?

This is unfair. We have no power in our town. Most of the places still have no power. How is that NJ residents (including myself & my husband) can't find, email or fax our votes if we have no power? Calling our local police or municipal Isn't going to help if we have no phones to call?
