TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) -- One storm-battered New Jersey county is delivering ballots to emergency shelters while New York City is lining up shuttle buses to ferry people in hard-hit coastal areas to the polls.
With the presidential election looming just a week after Superstorm Sandy's devastation, authorities are scrambling to make voting as manageable as possible while election watchers warn that any shortcuts could compromise the integrity of the balloting.
Election officials in both New Jersey and New York are guardedly optimistic that power will be restored and most polling places will be open in all but the worst-hit areas for Tuesday's election. Both states are allowing displaced residents to cast a provisional ballot for president and statewide office holders in any polling place.
