“Delays caused by technical issues aren’t an excuse to deny voters their right to vote,” the ACLU of New Jersey wrote on Twitter. “We and the @LWVNJ are suing to extend voting hours statewide.”

“Operational & technical issues this morning at polling locations around the state made voters leave without casting a ballot. We are seeking an extension of polling hours so voters have an opportunity to return and vote,” the League of Women Voters wrote on Twitter.
