Cuomo allows affidavit ballots for residents affected by Sandy


Officials say 20 polling sites have been changed in the borough after superstorm Sandy rolled through last Monday.



In order to avoid possible confusion, Gov. Cuomo issued an executive order that allows voters to cast ballots at any polling site they can get to on Tuesday.



Residents will have to sign an affidavit stating they're registered to vote in the presidential and U.S. Senate, voters can cast ballots at any open polling place.



The executive order allows residents to only vote for candidates for congress, state senate and assembly if they are voting in the same district where they live.



To see what site to head to tomorrow, text 877 877 and answer a few prompts.



Polling places will open tomorrow at 6 a.m. and close at 9 p.m.More info at NYS Board of Elections
