New York, NY (AP) — Workers scrambled at the last minute to set up a polling site on storm-ravaged Staten Island.
The feverish activity occurred Tuesday at Public School 52 in the Midland Beach neighborhood.
An hour before the 6 a.m. poll opening, flares were set up at the school entrance. There was no light at all.
Police helped the poll workers get gas for their generator.
The voting machines had to be retrieved from inside the school.
Heaters were stacked on tables in the tents. The temperature was around 29 degrees.
