“The Board surveyed and assessed all polling sites in each borough and determined the usability and accessibility of each poll site in advance of this Tuesday’s election. We have consolidated some poll sites and found alternative locations for others,” the Board of Elections said in a release.

Most of the poll sites forced to move in Queens were in the Rockaways.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said this will effect about 143,000 voters in the city.

“Over the next day, it’s going to be critical that the Board of Elections communicate this new information to their poll workers. Unfortunately, as you know, the Board has had a history of not opening all poll sites on time, and they’re going to work hard to make sure that poll workers and voters know where they’re supposed to go on Election Day,” Bloomberg said,

Shuttle service will be provided to assist voters in getting to their poll sites in Far Rockaway.

For those voters who can’t get to their polling site on election day, they can vote in person at their borough’s Board of Election  site until 5 p.m. Monday, November 5. In Queens, the office is located at 126-06 Queens Boulevard
Kew Gardens (718-730-6730).
