Did you already vote absentee- for John Edwards? Well, you can change it! Mercer County plans to let voters switch:

Mercer County voters who cast absentee ballots for former presidential candidates including Rudy Giuliani or John Edwards can still have their vote count.
They will have an opportunity to vote again and replace their original ballot due to a court ruling in Ocean County and a decision by Mercer County Clerk Paula Sollami-Covello.
The county will follow a state Superior Court ruling that ordered the Ocean County clerk to distribute duplicate absentee ballots to those who voted for formerly viable candidates, Sollami-Covello announced yesterday.
Those affected must apply for the second absentee ballot in person at the Mercer County Clerk's Office by Monday at 3 p.m. Before receiving the ballot, the voters must sign an affidavit saying they had already cast their absentee ballot and that their choice had withdrawn.

Bergen, Essex, Union and (of course) Ocean are allowing re-votes as well. Contact your County Clerk Monday morning if your vote falls into this category!

Make your voice heard- VOTE!
