The election must go on. Despite the widespread destruction Hurricane Sandy brought to New Jersey, state officials are working overtime to make sure voters get a chance to cast their ballots. New Jersey announced Thursday it will deploy military trucks to use as polling stations, and county clerks’ offices will stay open through the weekend to process mail-in ballots. New Jersey officials are also allowing registered voters to pick up mail-in ballots through the Nov. 6 election. The Garden State has 3,000 polling locations, and it’s not clear how many of them have power.
