City councilor files complaint over polling location change
HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) — A Hoboken city councilor has filed a complaint over a City Hall polling location change due to a high profile hearing scheduled on Election Day.
Councilman Michael DeFusco says in his County Board of Elections complaint that a polling location was moved to the City Hall basement with little notice sent to residents. NJ.com reports the change coincides with a high profile hearing for a nightclub shut down by the city after videos of illicit activity there were circulated online.
The hearing was pushed back twice, eventually landing on Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. DeFusco argues a crowded polling place with the presence of press and police may dissuade voters.
A Hoboken spokesperson says signs will be in place to direct voters if they are unsure of where to go.
