New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno has instructed that voters displaced by Hurricane Sandy be allowed to cast absentee ballots by email and fax until 8 p.m. on Tuesday. Voters will be able to submit voting applications until 5 p.m.

Displaced voters will count as “overseas voters,” and will follow the same practices currently in place for New Jersey voters serving overseas in the military.

A spokesman for Guadagno’s office told Politico it’s not a new system. The state is simply using a regulatory process to qualify voters displaced by Sandy under existing law. But it’s the first time civilian voters in New Jersey have been allowed to vote electronically.
