This weekend marks the fourth anniversary of Sandy, which hit just before the 2012 election. We asked listeners to share their stories of heading to the polls in a disaster zone.
@WNYC remember waiting about 2 hours to vote because of the lines but voting itself was relatively quick / easy— jenna rosen (@jennarosen) October 26, 2016
@WNYC yes, I voted near Columbus circle. We had no damage from the storm, area was quiet but no lines at my polling place.— Champian Fulton (@ChampianFulton) October 27, 2016
@WNYC We didn't power, but our polling place did. So it was normal, tho I lingered a while after voting in order to enjoy the heat!— Mike Onorato (@YankeeClipper09) October 27, 2016
@WNYC yep, no power at home and I think the polling station was run by generators....I'm a naturalized citizen....nothing would stop me— Bernie Cunningham (@Runbernie) October 27, 2016
