VoteDon't forget to vote today. If you're in NYC and have been displaced by Hurricane Sandy, you can vote at any polling place that is convenient for you by requesting an affidavit ballot at that polling place. If you live in an area seriously impacted by the hurricane but were not displaced, you need to know where your regular polling place is or where it was moved to. Here's how you can quickly do that.


Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer writes:

IMPORTANT: If you have been displaced by Hurricane Sandy, you are eligible to vote at any polling place. Just go to any polling place in the city and request an affidavit ballot.

It’s important to note that, due to Hurricane Sandy, more than sixty polling places around the city have been moved. As a result, you might be voting at a new location tomorrow.

There are a few ways to find out if your polling place has moved:

Check out the New York City Board of Elections’ frequently-updated list of relocated poll sites;
Text NYCVOTES to 877877;

Call the New York State Board of Elections’ toll-free hotline for people with Sandy-related voting questions (including questions related to polling site location changes). The number is 1-855-NYS-SANDY (1-855-697-7263);

Visit whosontheballot.org and type in your address. At whosontheballot.org, you can also learn more about the candidates on the ballot in your area.

As always, polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Heading out the door now to harbor "hatred of God". Will be thinking of our resident trolls as I cast my vote for sin and perdition!

Bob Dylan predicts that Obama will win in a landslide:


I registered to vote approx 4-5 years ago in NY State and now I cant find myself on the voter lookup to see where i have to go vote
What am i supposed to do now?
I have voted since I registered but I moved to a different town in the same county.
Any input?

I thought they voted over 90% for John McCain in 2008. Why the big change? Are they afraid that the Republicans will push through cuts in welfare benefits?

Barack Obama will win the 57th Presidential Election of the United States of America.

You have to tell the Clerk or Registrar in the town to which you've moved. You may still be on list in the other town's polling place, but if they require an ID and it has your new address on it, they probably won't allow you to vote. Even if they don't require an ID, I'd assume someone else is now registered at your old address.

I'd go down to your new polling place (you can find it here: http://pol.moveon.org/2012c/pollingplace/?id=57134-7021396-rDLjZix&t=7 ) and explain that you've moved but forgot to register. They may give you a provisional ballot.

A copy of the executive order for NYS allowing residents to vote outside of their assigned polling place is here.

Rocky, the article states that Satmar is voting for Obama because they share his disdain for Israel.

The article does say that a minority of Satmar will still be voting for Romney, because even though they hate the state of Israel, they still care about the Jews living in Israel.

But the vast majority of Satmar (according to the article) will be voting for Obama because they share his intention of destroying the state of Israel.

LAC-i don't know what that article is saying and don't really care.
Satmar does not want to see Israel destroyed.Destroyed means by enemies with lots of Jewish blood shed.The Satmar Rebbe zt'l cried when a Jewish solider was killed it didn't matter if the soldier was religious or secular.
Jews who are anti-Zionist would like to see Israel dissolved without any blood shed.Is it possible?normally not.But look at Romanian dictator Ceausescu before he was brought down the world was watching and swore that thousands will be killed.The Berlin wall was brought down.Normally how many should of been killed?The soviet empire crumbled,how many were killed?So you see that it can happen.
I don't like Obama and normally wouldn't of vote for him but since many frum Jews who are pro Israel are making noise that he is anti-Israel and make the vote an Israeli issue i will vote for Obama as a protest.I don't believe as Jew we should send messages to the president like it was done in district 9 by electing Bob Turner.

Deremes, you have got to be kidding, right? Ceaușescu was brought down as a result violence and he and his wife were thereafter executed. Millions died from Communism and the Soviet empire was the worst in mass killings. Starvation and violence brought down the Berlin wall.

School is good Deremes. Get a book. Read it.


I'm just pointing out to you that the polls are heavily skewed, and you're not getting this information on the regular channels. That may explain intrade.

Listen guys, do your own research. I'm just telling you that the internals I've seen point to a huge landslide.

But if there are no sudden surprises, the current polls show a Romney landslide, after careful consideration of the internals.

as far as the rest of your nonsense, i can assure you that the big money players are amongst the smartest and savviest people around. you think they dont know about the polls "internals" ??!!!! they do this for a living. and some have connections to the intel community. when sadam was caught, the value of that contract started rising like a rocket long before any news org. had reported it. the same for bin laden being caught or killed. dont flatter yourself that youre wiser than the market. you are not.

how did that romney landslide turnout? how were your "market internals" ?

HAHAHAHAHAHHHAA. thats what happens when your source for "news and info" is the faux news channel and their foxbots.
you actually believed them???!!! rush,levin,hannity,limbaugh,dick morris, rove etc.... youre a pompous and confident moron.

i cant stop laughing at you.
