Many Sandy Volunteers Couldn't Vote, Elections Officials Say
St. Lawrence County Board of Elections officials say an unknown number of north country residents helping with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts were unable to vote.
But, according to Democratic Elections Commissioner Jennie Bacon, the only way those helping with relief efforts could vote outside their home county was if they received an absentee ballot before they left.
"I believe that if Gov. Cuomo could do it again, he would probably include those people who are down there working."
"It's a travesty that he forgot the people who were being the very rescuers that they needed to accomplish the goal," he said.
