The midterm elections are Tuesday, Nov. 4, and some New Yorkers are wondering where they can go to cast their vote. With hundreds of sites to go to, a correct location can be determined by simply entering a zip code.
Poll Site Locator, which is certified by the Board of Elections in the City of New York, makes it easy for voters in the city. There is a search bar at the top of the page where someone simply has to add his or her address.
For people to vote in New York state, they must be citizens of the United States and residents of New York for at least 30 days and at least 18 years old before the election date. Those who are in jail or are on parole for a felony conviction are not permitted to vote.
Americans who are outside of New York state can go to CanIVote.org to find a poll site in their area. CanIVote.org offers helpful information for everyone, like what kind identification to bring and information about the candidates.
It is too late for those who have not yet registered to vote. Registration takes at least 25 days before the election date to be effective.
New Yorkers have three ballot measures to vote for in 2014. The first proposal is about redistricting, which would draw district lines every 10 years. The second is a legislature ballot that would allow electronic versions of bills instead of requiring paper copies. The last is about bonds, which would authorize $2 billion in state bonds to fund technology upgrades in schools if passed.
Going into the election Tuesday, a majority of voters were more concerned with domestic issues -- like the economy and health care -- as opposed to the fight against the Islamic State militants or the Ebola outbreak, a national poll by NBC News/Wall Street Journal revealed Sunday.
