I imagine these will be provisional ballots. Haven't looked up the rules in NY regarding these ballots but I do know Ohio does not count them until
10 days after the election.
With Election Day turmoil expected because of the ongoing problems caused by Superstorm Sandy, Gov. Cuomo has signed an executive order allowing
displaced voters to cast ballots at any polling site.
A person would go to a polling place, sign an affidavit and fill out a ballot anonymously, Cuomo said.
The vote will count for the presidential race or the U.S. Senate race.
But a person’s vote won’t count if they are voting at a site that is not their home state Senate or Assembly district.
