Urgent: Early Voting Hours Extended

 Hi, Everyone,

Those long lines at our early voting locations have caught the attention of the BOE and the County Executive. Voting hours have been extended by 1 hour each day of early voting.

The following is from the League of Women Voters of Westchester:

Due to the overwhelming turnout for this year's General Election, the Board of Elections is extending ALL early voting hours as follows:
Tuesday, October 27: 12pm to 9pm
Wednesday, October 28: 8am to 5pm
Thursday, October 29: 12pm to 9pm
Friday, October 30: 8am to 5pm
Saturday, October 31: 12pm to 6pm (except Mt. Kisco Memorial Complex Special hours: 11am to 4pm)
Sunday, November 1, 12pm to 6pm
There is NO EARLY VOTING on November 2
Voting on Election Day, November 3 is from 6am to 9pm. You must vote at your assigned polling place on November 3.

Most of the people I've talked to have waited 1 - 2.5 hours; my wait was a little more than an hour. But all-in-all, the process ran smoothly. Remember, you can drop off your mail-in ballot and you don't have to wait in line - the dropbox for Mt. Pleasant is just a few steps inside the community center and there is a poll worker 'guarding' it who can help you.

Please be prepared. The rest of the week is forecast to be rainy and Friday is projected to be cold, so dress accordingly.

Please stay safe, be patient, wear your mask, make some in-line friends as you wait, and VOTE!
