New York polling update

I voted for Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney on Row H this morning.

I understand that voters were waiting at 5:30 am for the polls to open at 6am.  The polls were busy until about 6:30am.  Many of the voters were probably commuters who needed to get into NYC to work.  The lines were short, maybe up to 10 people, but moved quickly.  The polls were a little busier than 4 years ago.  The polls in NY are open until 9am

There seemed to have additional procedures at the polling place this morning. I don’t remember them asking me for my address in the past or having me initial my signature.  They didn’t ask me for ID, but you should bring it just in case they do.

I also got a report from a local election protection helpline that things are quiet so far this morning.

I ran into many of my neighbors at the polling place, including fellow North Babylon resident Suffolk County Democratic Chair Rich Schaffer.  He had been out giving out literature at a train station with local candidates.  I don’t think he even noticed that I needled him about our town supervisor holding most of the town board meetings during working hours.

Listening to the Flobots while typing this up.  Tried being up-to-the-minute, and doing this report with our fancy notebook webcam, but I couldn’t get the video/audio sync correct.  They are one of Green Party vice presidential candidate Rosa Clemente’s favorite bands.
