Original Story

At least one local polling location could be relocated for Election Day as the Westchester County Board of Elections deals with power outages and other storm-related issues that are expected to linger through Election Day.

Purchase residents who usually cast their votes at the Purchase Community House could be asked to vote at the Leo Mintzer Center in West Harrison. There is no power at the community house as of Monday afternoon. The Harrison Town Clerk's office said Monday that the change hasn't been confirmed and that the county board of elections is expected to make a final decision by Monday afternoon.

A spokesperson from the Westchester County Board of elections said Friday that 150 of the county's 380 polling locations were without power. Officials said at the time they were working through contingency plans leading up to Tuesday.
