You might have heard about New Jersey's last resort to e-mail voting for its state voters still struggling to recover from the damages of Hurricane Sandy. Well, as warned by some electoral scholars earlier this week, e-mail servers used for voting in two major counties of New Jersey crashed due to the heavy influx of traffic this morning, leading Essex County official Christopher Durkin to invite his 450,000 registered voters to send their ballots to his personal Hotmail e-mail address via Facebook. Further complicating the technical issue is the overwhelming number of requests for e-mail ballots received by county clerks' office, forcing the state to extend its voting deadline to Friday afternoon, 8 p.m. (ET).
