Different Polling Site
« on: August 07, 2012, 08:15:03 PM »
Got my Board of Elections VOTE notice today, and my normal election pollsite has been changed from my usual PS10 to St. Joseph School. Plus, upon opening it up, all the pages were glued together. Not what I usually expected. You practically have to tear every page apart and there are still some stuck together. Anyone else experience this? I'm wondering if this is legit.

Wow, Bob, it's a good thing you brought this up.  I checked my mailing and it does give a new polling site, which is crazy.  I live in Ravenswood.  Why wouldn't the entire housing project have the same polling site? I have to look into that.  The error cited in the New York Times article is beyond belief.


The low-tack glue on my packet was just around the perimeter, to keep the many multi-lingual pages together.  It came off in clean stringiness.

The redistricting thing really is suspicious.  The population of Ravenswood is bigger than many towns.  For that reason alone we should have our own polling site.

All the election districts were redrawn due to redistricting. I went from the 58th ED to the 20th ED without leaving my building.


You could try calling either the main Board of Elections line 866-868-3692, or the Queens BOE office at 718-730-6730 to verify. Probably worth doing either way, since the Board proved on June 26th that they sometimes leave much to be desired.

Thanks! I forgot this is usually done after a census.

I also have been moved to St. Joseph's. But I'm not complaining, since its closer to me than the previous polling site (P.S. 70). and of course the pages were sticky and messy.. it was put together by the NYC Board of Elections. Did you expect the BOE to do something competently lol
