TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — One New Jersey county is using a bus full of voting equipment to help voters displaced by Sandy.

Ocean County officials have hired North Carolina-based Printelec to take its voting bus Monday to places where county residents are being sheltered.

Printelec spokesman Chris Andrews says residents are receiving, filling out and returning mail-in ballots.

The bus was planned to have stops at shelters in Toms River, Pemberton and Burlington Township. The last two stops are intended to reach voters who will have a hard time getting back to Ocean County on Election Day.

The state is also letting people vote by fax or email, but some voting rights groups object.
