Earlier speculation about changes to some Park Slope residents’ polling places has proven founded. Some changes to local polling places have been made because those sites are still acting as evacuation shelters:
• Those previously slated to vote at John Jay High School will now be voting at P.S. 282 (180 6th Avenue)
• Those previously slated to vote at Park Slope Armory YMCA will now be voting at P.S. 154 (1625 11th Avenue) respectively.
Anyone unclear about their polling place can get up-to-date information on the Board of Elections website.
Voters aren’t the only ones unable to utilize John Jay High School. Also affected: students. The emergency evacuation shelter will not be open to high schoolers until at least Wednesday. Citywide, 57 schools are either damaged or have been repurposed. Affected students will get another day off from school as education administrators attempt to figure out what to do with the 58,000 displaced students.
