Update at 11:13 a.m.

St. Margaret's Church in Pearl River is the only polling location in Rockland County with power issues. They have enough for lights, but not heat, so poll workers are fighting the chill while they help voters. Members of the National Guard are there to install a generator to help.

Poll workers at St. Margaret's and Pearl River Public Library report a heavy turnout Tuesday morning.

Orange & Rockland restored power to five other polling locations late Monday.

Did you see any of the candidates or local officials? They will be out voting today, too. For example, State Senator David Carlucci (D) is expected to vote at New City Library at 9:30 a.m. His challenger, Janis A. Castaldi (R) of Ossining, plans to vote at the Roosevelt School at 11 a.m.

Thanks for commenting, Sydney! Were there many people there when you went to vote? Glad to hear they were able to keep things running smoothly despite the challenges there.

Ryan, There was a steady flow, I believe most of the folks I saw where commuters heading out for the day. I was there around 7:15am. The workers where freezing.
Ryan Buncher November 06, 2012 at 05:09 PM
I got there a little after 10 a.m. and it was still pretty steady and the workers were still cold.
Mike O November 07, 2012 at 12:53 AM
Voted around 5:30PM. Still cold in there, but the poll workers are troopers and it is still running smooth. Kudo's to them.
Ryan Buncher November 07, 2012 at 01:18 AM
Absolutely. I know they weren't happy about the cold, but I heard nothing but good things about how organized they were at that location.
