Thousands of voters in storm-ravaged New York and New Jersey could have trouble voting on Tuesday, thanks to Hurricane Sandy. The superstorm knocked out an undetermined number of polling stations, and left tens of thousands of people unable to return to their homes. New Jersey is designating storm victims as overseas voters, so they can vote by fax or email. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said his constituents could vote at any polling place if they presented an affidavit. "We want everyone to vote," Cuomo said. "Just because you are displaced doesn't mean you should be disenfranchised."
