Governor Andrew Cuomo made it even easier to vote in NY state. Affidavit voting will enable voters

Ballots must still be postmarked no later than Monday, November he Governor Andrew Cuomo
made it even easier to vote in NY state. He announced that people will be able to file an affidavit ballot at any polling place in the state, allowing them to vote for president and U.S. Senate even if they have been displaced by Superstorm Sandy. But unless a voter picks an election site within the same district for the state Senate, Assembly and House of Representatives, they will be unable to select candidates in those down-ballot races. Governor Christie made a similar announcement for New Jersey voters.
