Heated debate surging online as NJ voters told they can vote by email11/4/2012
An impassioned debate has broken out online as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announces voters displaced by Hurricane Sandy can vote by email or fax in his state. Some think the move is a brilliant alternative to seven-hour lines and red tape; others argue it's a legal misstep ripe for voter fraud accusations. Under the system, residents can submit a mail-in ballot application by fax or email to the local county clerk. When that is received, the clerk's office will then email or fax a ballot back to the voter. The hope is that this will take some of the pressure off local voting stations that have been overwhelmed with congestion since the storm, and also reach voters who've lost ballots and are unable to come in person.
