Gov. Cuomo helps storm-ravaged voters in NY

THE BRONX - With voters across the state ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, Gov. Cuomo has taken measures to ensure fair voting practices for those in need. Today, Cuomo signed an executive order allowing voters displaced by Sandy to cast their ballots at any polling place they chose. However, once leaving their home district, residents can only vote for federal and statewide races. In addition, several polling places in The Bronx have changed: - Locust Point Civic Association moved to the MTA parking lot, 4260 Throgs Neck Expressway- P.S. 69 moved to the Archimedes Academy for Math, 456 White Plains Road - Draddy Hall at Manhattan College moved to the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale, 3700 Henry Hudson Parkway Officials with the Board of Elections say they sent out mailings and placed phone calls outlining the changes.
