Town clerk, overseeing her first Par-Troy election, says lines greeted many polling places.
Election Day is finally here, and despite Sandy's winds and rain and the loss it left behind, it appears residents are anxious to have their say at the ballot box. Asked how her first Parsippany election since coming to town was going, Municipal Clerk Yancy Wazirmas said that things were hectic. "It's been busy," she said. "We had a line at [5:45 a.m.] before the polls opened." Wazirmas has had to preside over an election process hampered by the superstorm. Several Parsippany polling places were put out of commission—for example, Lake Hiawatha School suffered serious roof damage—so balloting sites were consolidated, and even Town Hall is hosting voters. Despite the storm and national predictions of low turnout in areas hard hit by Sandy, …

Check back here all day for live election updates. In the race for President of the United States, influential New Jersey political insiders say Republicans may benefit from a projected down voter turnout after Tropical Storm Sandy left much of the state without power through Tuesday. According to surveys issued to political officials and influencers Monday, respondents from both sides of the aisle believe the storm will have an impact on how many voters head to the polls to vote in the general election. In 2008, the majority of Parsippany voters chose a Democratic candidate for president, according to the New Jersey Department of State. In the township, 12,219 voters chose Barack Obama and 11,091 voters chose John McCain. New Jersey, …

Also, county clerk accepting vote-by-mail applications through Oct. 30.

Most in New Jersey lost that right, but 10 Morris County municipalities are still holding April school elections.
This is a column about how important it is for everyone to go out to the polls tomorrow to vote for candidates for school boards and to vote on local school budgets. But it’s not very relevant for the vast majority of adults in New Jersey because most people will not get the chance to pick candidates or accept or reject the proposed tax bill for their local schools. In Morris County, only 10 municipalities will hold school elections tomorrow, and because some of those towns are in regional districts, it means only eight budgets are up for a vote. (In Patch-covered towns, votes will be held in the School District of the Chathams, the Morris School District, and Mendham Township — that's it). The bill that Gov. Chris Christie signed at the …

Almost 1 in 5 districts statewide has already eliminated the April vote.
Voters in six Morris County municipalities—so far—have lost one opportunity to participate in the democratic process. Less than two weeks after Gov. Chris Christie gave them the option, 106 school districts have jumped at the chance to jettison the annual public vote on the school budget and move the vote on board of education candidates to November, alongside the election for political seats ranging from town council to, this year, president of the United States. That represents almost 20 percent of the state’s districts. In Morris County, as of last Friday, the ranks included Butler, Parsippany, Boonton, Florham Park, Lincoln Park and Randolph, according to the New Jersey School Boards Association. More are expected to follow suit. This …
