In some areas of Nassau, voting will not go on as normal, said Democrat Elections Commissioner William Biamonte.
“Long Beach, Island Park and Woodmere are dead in the water with no chance of getting power by Tuesday,” he said. “So we’re looking at moving away from usual sites and going to a ‘super site’ that combines 10 or 11 polling places in one.”
He said details are still being hashed out, but in Long Beach officials are considering setting up voting at Nickerson Park, the Malibu Beach Club or some other locale on the East End. “We’ll have tents, generators, lights, sort of like a military operation,” Biamonte said.
He wasn’t sure where such “super sites” would be in Woodmere or Island Park. State and local officials are slated to huddle again Friday.
