Governor Cuomo Issues Order For Voters In Storm-Affected Areas

As you know, today is election day, and polls will be open in New York state until 9:00 p.m. . Many people in the greater New York City area affected by last week’s Hurricane Sandy may have difficulty finding their polling place. Governor Andrew Cuomo has issued an executive order to enable them to vote in state and national elections, even if their polling place is closed due to the last week’s storm. If you have family members or friends in the New York City area, you may wish to share this with them.

 “Voting Info for Storm-Affected New Yorkers

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed an executive order that will greatly facilitate voting for new Yorkers who were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Due to the disaster emergency the Governor issued on Friday October 26, 2012 for all 62 counties of New York, he issued an executive order that suspends certain sections of the Election Law to allow New Yorkers in the affected areas to vote or cast affidavit ballots regardless of where they are registered. In addition, the Executive Order also mandates every board of election in New York State send any affidavit ballot to the board of election where the voter is actually registered, so that the vote is counted in the correct place.
