Last Edited:

New Jersey's top law enforcement officer says he's taking extra steps to ensure the integrity of Election Day votes throughout the state.

Attorney General Christopher Porrino says that about 250 lawyers will be assigned throughout the state to assist county election officials in any voting-related legal issues.

He also noted that it's a criminal offense to solicit voters within the 100-foot zone of the polling sites.

Porrino is reminding everyone that they can call 1-877-NJ-VOTER (1-877-658-6837) to report problems or concerns at polling places.

Polling locations will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
