N.J. Gov. Jon Corzine's Vote Delayed When Polling Problems Arise

New Jersey's governor has cast his vote in the state's presidential primary after there were problems at his polling place.

Jon S. Corzine was scheduled to cast his ballot at 6:15 a.m at the Hoboken Fire Department Engine Company No. 2.

Two voting machines didn't work for about 45 minutes and about a dozen voters were turned away. There was no word what caused the problem.

Just before 7 a.m., Corzine arrived and was able to cast his ballot.

Corzine has endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton's bid for the Democratic nomination.

After voting, Corzine told reporters the weather was holding up for the state's first presidential primary in February. "We're doing pretty well. We're doing like the Giants," Corzine said.

Polls in the Garden State are open until 8 p.m.

More than 4.8 million people are eligible to vote in Tuesday's party primaries. Nearly 60 percent are unaffiliated and must declare a party to vote.
