New York voters will select candidates to fill a number of judicial offices tomorrow across the state, though in areas hard hit by tropical storm Sandy, the usual polling places may be moved because of power outages, flood waters or storm damage.
The city Board of Elections and boards in 57 counties outside the city are responsible for designating new polling sites if the ones they intended to use are not available. Updated information on election sites is available through the city at http://vote.nyc.ny.us/html/temp_hours/temp_hours.shtml and from the counties or county at http://www.elections.ny.gov/CountyBoards.html. The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thirty state Supreme Court seats will be filled. Supreme Court elections will be held in all judicial districts except the Fifth, Eighth and Thirteenth. Also on the ballot in some areas are judgeships in County and Family Court, Surrogte’s Court and, in New York City, Civil Court.
