NEW YORK — Election officials were ordering generators, moving voting locations and figuring out how to transport poll workers displaced from coastal areas as Tuesday's presidential election became the latest challenge for states whacked by Superstorm Sandy.
The storm devastated communities up and down the East Coast. It had already disrupted early voting in parts of Maryland, West Virginia, New Jersey and North Carolina. With just days to go, officials in those states were scrambling to ensure orderly and fair balloting in affected places.
The contest between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney likely won't be affected by voting problems caused by the storm. The states crippled most by Sandy — New York, New Jersey and Connecticut — are largely Democratic and considered safely in Obama's camp.
