Election Day Advice from Brooklyn's Community Board 6

We received these helpful hints from CB6 concerning today's election:

There's a few things you need to know for this Election Day, Tuesday, November 5th.

First, some poll sites have changed AGAIN in some cases since the October Run-off Election! Re-check anything you may have recently received from the Board of Elections, or use their online Poll Site locator by inputting your home address (according to voting records) at this link:

Second, there are a total of 6 referenda on the ballot. They are located ON THE BACK of the scannable ballot you will receive at the Poll Site. They are written in fine print. If you have the time it would probably make a lot of sense to read them over before you go to vote. You may even want to write down how you want to vote on these propositions and bring it with you to your poll site. Bring your reading glasses! The Campaign Finance Board offers not only the proposition language, but also provides some non-partisan reasons for and against each one. You can find the language here on the CFB website:

Lastly, for those of you who live anywhere near the Park Slope Armory on 8th Avenue (between 14th and 15th Streets) please be advised that the de Blasio campaign has selected this site for a post-election party. Residents in the area should have received a flyer/letter from the campaign directly.

More helpful stuff: Gotham Gazette has published a "Guide for the Last Minute Voter."
