The US Navy is also sending ships. The first to arrive is the helicopter carrier USS Wasp (LHD-1) which was originally sent out to sea to escape Hurricane Sandy and how has been sent to the New Jersey coast to help survivors. Also on their way are the amphibious transport dock ships, USS San Antonio (LPD-17) and USS Carter Hall ('___'-50). Massachusetts Maritime Academy is also dispatching the 576 foot training ship, T.S. Kennedy, to serve as temporary housing for relief workers.

I Definitely had that concern too, but I think there is more potential for rioting after the election.
I feel the emotions are high enough right now that post election riots are possible.
If Romney wins the election could Obama still issue martial law after the elections?
What result would cause more potential for rioting, a Romney win or Obama win?
