ew Jersey is coming up with contingency plans to make sure Tuesday's election goes ahead on schedule despite the devastation left behind by Superstorm Sandy. The state is deploying military trucks to serve as polling places in some of the hardest hit communities, state officials said Thursday. Department of Defense trucks will be parked outside polling places that have lost power with big signs saying, "Vote here." The state is also extending the deadline for voting by mail. Officials are still trying to figure out how many of the state's 3,000 polling places are without power, or totally inaccessible.
