Rockland County Voters should be advised that every polling place will be open Tuesday, November 6th 2012 with one exception shown below. The districts that would normally vote at the Woodglen Elementary School at 121 Phillips Hill Rd are being relocated to the New City Elementary School at 60 Crestwood Dr. in New City.
The Election districts affected are Clarkstown 40, 53, 60 and 69.
Also be advised that we do not need electricity to vote or conduct the election. You as a voter will merely sign the poll book, be given a paper ballot to fill in your choice of candidates (fill in the ovals), and place you ballot in the Emergency Ballot box/slot to be counted later in a bipartisan manner. The ballots will be scanned through the system later when electricity is available should this occur. In other words this is the same manner of voting as always utilized if there is a machine breakdown and the machine cannot be fixed immediately. Some voters feel uncomfortable with this process but everything is done in a bipartisan manner and the ballots are secured at all times.
We have received generators from State and Local Emergency operations for sites without power.
For more voting information, please visit the Rockland County Board of Elections.
