It’s that time of year again. And just when we’ve had enough of the contentious political TV ads, lawn signs marring our landscape and annoying robocalls during dinnertime, it’s all finally coming to an end. Just remember to get out and vote.
Voting is not only an American privilege; it’s a responsibility that should never be taken lightly. Apparently, it has in the past. Well, at least locally, if the low voter tallies recorded by the Suffolk County Board of Elections are any indication.
The choices we make on Tuesday will certainly impact us in one way or another. So isn’t that reason enough to vote?
This newspaper has done its part in bringing the candidates and issues to our readers so they’ll be prepared to make an educated choice. Now it’s time for our readers to follow through and head to the polls on Nov. 5.
We encourage anyone who struggles to find the time to vote come Election Day, Nov. 5, to take advantage of the state’s enrollment of early voting this year. Do so by submitting your vote at Islip Town Hall Annex, 401 Main Street, from now until Nov. 3.
Registered voters can vote at any of the offered locations in Suffolk County.
Each township across the county is required to host one polling station. However, voting time windows are drastically different from day to day, so make sure to check the time-and-day listings below. Time is running out!
Anyone with questions or seeking information about other polling stations throughout the county should call 631-852-4500.
