NEW YORK CITY -- Andrea Plain was one of the New Yorkers who benefited from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s executive order signed Monday, which allows voters who have been displaced by Hurricane Sandy to go to any polling place, sign an affidavit and vote there. Plaid was still worried about whether she would have to present a particular ID or be directed someplace else. However, she sped through the voting process at 265 Bergen Street, near downtown Brooklyn, saying it was "really simple."
NEW YORK CITY -- Earlier today, Tom Stewart shared a photo to illustrate the long lines at a poll station in Brooklyn Heights, an area unscathed by Hurricane Sandy. To guide the long lines, volunteers held signs that said "Vote Here" in five languages.
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- No line and no problem voting at this Lexington precinct, reports Bill Goodman, host and managing editor of Kentucky Tonight and KET’s election coverage: “Election officers say that more than 50 percent of the registered voters at Morton Middle School had already voted by noon today. This polling place is in the heart of some contentious state House of Representatives races, as well as a key area in the battle for 6th Congressional District currently held by Democrat Ben Chandler. If Chandler loses to Republican Andy Barr, Kentucky becomes more red than it is today; it would leave John Yarmuth the only democrat in the Kentucky delegation, which includes Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and tea party favorite Sen. Rand Paul.”
