Gov. Cuomo Signs Order Allowing Sandy Victims in to Vote Anywhere in New York
ALBANY, N.Y. – Gov. Andrew Cuomo has agreed to issue an executive order that will allow displaced voters in New York to cast ballots by affidavit at any polling site they can reach Tuesday.
The order will permit voters to sign affidavits that they're legally registered to vote in the presidential and state races
and cast ballots at any open polling site, even those outside their neighborhoods.
But they won't be able to vote for state legislative candidates unless the polling place is within the proper legislative district.
New Jersey is allowing voters to use provisional ballots at any polling site.
Common Cause-New York and the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School urged the action earlier Monday.
