Due to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, the Board of Elections has been diligently working to maintain our schedule of preparation for the upcoming General Election. Working in cooperation with the State Board of Elections, the Governor’s office and local municipalities, we are currently assessing the situation regarding the accessibility of our polling places. Once we establish which of our polling places are inoperative, we will make arrangements to relocate those election districts, notify voters and accommodate the electorate to the best of our ability.
