News and Commentary

Michael Aron, NJTV News, provides a preview of November’s State Assembly elections

What happens if, on Election Day, a storm knocks out power. Or a ruptured gas main forces the evacuation of a polling place. Or a hostile nation creates mayhem by sending out misinformation? New Jersey county election, law enforcement and technology officials spent all day Tuesday preparing for those and a host of other potential disruptions at a conference in Princeton. (Colleen O’Dea, NJ Spotlight)
