Toms River, N.J. – Hurricane Sandy has caused profound damage across the Northeastern Seaboard. One of the issues that county governments are dealing with currently is how to hold a Presidential Election when many polling location are without power, evacuated, or flood damaged.

The Ocean County Department of Elections has found a solution for relocation of one of the non-functional sites by commissioning voting solutions provider Printelect’s Mobile Voting Precinct (MVP).

The MVP is a 38-foot, customized Winnebago. Its precinct-centric layout features 15 voting stations, a two-person registration desk, efficient traffic-flow design and, as well as being independently powered by generator. This specific design will make it easier for Oceans County Elections by taking the up fitting of a new precinct location out of the equation.

“We have researched and developed the MVP to be an Election Day problem-solver,” said Owen D. Andrews, president/CEO of Printelect. “In this case, Ocean County will have the aid of this versatile solution to help their voters exercise their constitutional right in the midst of disaster clean up.”

In addition to emergency relief, the MVP is designed to address common issues that face election jurisdictions throughout the year, including voter-capacity relief efforts, voter registration drives and voter education exhibits.

“The MVP is bringing Ocean County much-needed relief at a time when voter turnout and participation is key,” Andrews notes.
