Where to Vote in Bernards Township? Some Locations Changed

Locations listed on sample ballots may not match revised polling sites after Sandy.

The number of voting locations for Tuesday in Bernards Township has been consolidated as a result of continuing power outages and other after-effects of Superstorm Sandy. Those new polling places are set for Election Day even if power is restored at other locations.

Bernards Township Clerk Denise Szabo said residents should check their actual voting district on their sample ballots, not only the previously assigned polling locations. Those polling locations may have been changed after those sample ballots were mailed out, she said.

Polls will be open on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., she said. She said that the municipal building at 1 Collyer Lane remained without power as of Monday, and results will tallied at the Bernards Township police headquarters, also located at the municipal complex, if power is not restored by then.

Below are the new polling locations for districts throughout Bernards Township, as listed on the Bernards Township website.

The township clerk asks that residents consult the front of previously mailed sample ballot for the correct voting district. Note that the Polling Location printed on the sample ballot may have changed due to power outages. Consult the following list:

Bernards Township Library (Districts 1 & 6) - CLOSED
Instead, vote at: Basking Ridge Fire House, 30 Washington Avenue, Basking Ridge.

I just called the Bernards Township police station and the woman who took my call said she didn't know if schools are open. She left me on hold for almost 10 minutes (I eventually hung up) while she was supposedly checking the school website!?

@All NJ election wardens - NOTICE Also, if the military is setting up trailers or temporary polling sites with polling booths in storm ravaged areas of NY and NJ and elsewhere, they better have computers on site there too on which storm victims can view the he final Presidential third party debate last night between Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) before voting. The military has a civic duty of it's own in overseeing and ensuring that computers are available for every storm victim to watch this third party final debate before voting. Every American has a civic duty to watch this final third party Free and Equal Election Debate before voting today. Be a loyal American citizen, and make sure you, your family and friends watch and listen to the Free and Equal Election Debate Replay right now. And, make sure it is available to anyone you know who is still without electricity. Invite them to watch the debate on your computer.

Hope signs are posted directing voters from regular polling places to new spots...because many of us are still without power and internet! A neighbor directed us (District 9) to Basking Ridge Fire House on Washington Ave. They were handling Districts 1-9.
