State and county authorities are stepping up measures to ensure that Tuesday’s general election runs smoothly.
The Attorney General’s office said Monday that 21 deputy attorney generals will be stationed in each of the state’s counties for Tuesday’s elections to assist in any voting-related legal issues.
The deputies will handle any court applications and provide timely legal advice to county election officials on emergent, voting-related matters. Deputies will be on duty during the entire voting day, according to a release.
The Monmouth County Prosecutors Office also will be available throughout the voting day to assist, according to a release.
Assistant prosecutors will be available to respond to reports of reports of fraudulent votes or attempts to cast illegal votes and to address any issues of voter intimidation.
Assistant prosecutors will be available for polling place security matters or other law enforcement emergencies, the release said.
To report any issues of voter fraud or misconduct call the Monmouth County Hot Line at (855) 786-5878.
Polls open Tuesday at 6 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
