Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
What to know when you hit the polls
Be a part of history. If youre an eligible voter, here are some voting essentials:
* Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
* If you dont know where your voting site is, visit vote-ny.com.
* Registered voters wont likely need to present ID for proof of address, but bring your drivers license, another photo ID or a utility bill just in case.
* If you have registered but arent listed in poll books at your site, ask to vote by paper affidavit ballot.
* Dont wear clothing or buttons supporting a candidate or referendum within 100 feet of the polls. If you do, poll workers will likely ask you to remove the buttons or zip up your coat to hide the T-shirt.
