New Yorkers were allowed to vote by affidavit at any polling place in the city due to an executive order Governor Andrew Cuomo signed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The New York Observer reports that a Board of Elections official said they are "still working on the voter history for last year's elections."
