Where to vote in Brooklyn tomorrow

Sandy be damned, we will vote tomorrow!! Photo by Tom Giebel.

This past week we’ve all been a little distracted by that brat Sandy and the amazing and inspiring outpouring of volunteer relief efforts in her wake. But the election that will shape the next four years of our lives and the future of this country is TOMORROW! If you keep your permanent residence out of state, you can still file an absentee ballot until 5pm today. If you are registered to vote locally, many polling sites have been changed due to Sandy’s wrath. Here are the changes for Brooklyn residents.

But will people be able to get to the polling stations? The news is saying “the burden is on the voter.” As the poignant New Yorker cover illustrates, it won’t be easy. But if there’s anything we have shown this week it’s that nothing can cripple the determination of this community to work together for our future. Stay tuned for updates about volunteers helping to get out the vote. And don’t forget there are lots of election watching parties around Brooklyn to get a pre-celebratory/just in case buzz going tomorrow night.
