Board of Elections Relocating Election Day Polling Sites Due to Sandy

Posted on: November 5th, 2012 at 6:18 am by

Mainstream media and its political pundits dubbed Hurricane Sandy the real October surprise this presidential election season. Not some clandestine photo or audio snippet, but the wrath of Ms. Mother Nature. Locally speaking, some in the neighborhood seem discombobulated with regard to the proper polling station for tomorrow.

Seward Park High School was transformed last week into the local evacuation shelter for those residents living in Zone A. But the neighborhood icon is also the annual voting location for many in the immediate environs.  However, those who count Seward Park High School as their poling location needn’t worry as it remains unchanged. The emergency base of sorts was cleared out according to signs onsite.

The Board of Elections temporarily relocated a number of other polling stations due to the storm. Scope out the entire list of changes below, listed by borough. Note that the one change on the Lower East Side is for Bard HS Early College poll site, which will now be at PS 188/196 at 442 East Houston.
