Fromthe NJ GOP :" During a conference call this afternoon, New Jersey Republican State Committee Counsel Mark Sheridan discussed allegations of voting machine rigging in at least 7 New Jersey polling places in Passaic, Union, Middlesex, Camden,and Hudson counties."

Mark Sheridan said, "We have received dozens of calls from predominately Democrat areas throughout the state complaining of voting machines being preset with votes for Menendez, pollworker misconduct, and machines not registering votes for Tom Kean per the voter's intent. Upon entering the voting booth, individuals have encountered machines that are pre-set to vote for Menendez, causing serious confusion. In some instances, the voter has been unable to de-select the pre-set Menendez vote using the touch screen. A number of voters also have called to express concern that they mistakenly voted for Menendez."

Fromthe Ehrlich-Steele campaign:

There have been three reports of uniformed individuals threatening to confiscate campaign literature and/or arrest Ehrlich-Steele supporters for passing out campaign literature in Prince George’s County earlier today. This is a violation of Federal Election Code 18 USC 594 and can be punished by up to one year in prison.
