Eileen Kronbichler took advantage of Gov. Cuomo's order allowing displaced residents to vote anywhere in New York State. Kronbichler of Point Lookout on Long Island left her home with daughter and five-year-old grandson on Sunday, Oct. 28. They have been staying with her brother and sister-in-law in Bardonia since then. 

Kronbichler appreciated that she did not lose her opportunity to vote.

"It's very good being able to vote," she said.

She was also stoic about what happened to her home.

"I know we have no power, no heat. We have no gas to cook with," Kronbichler said. 

However, she has no plans to stay away. 

"I'll go back as soon as we get power," she said. "My situation is not bad compared to everybody else out there."

Others going into the school to vote expressed similar feelings about its importance.

Rocco Novellino of Bardonia said he thought the presidential race was going to be very close and he was hoping his candidate would win. 

Bardonia resident Adrienne Marchese-Hade brought her five- and 11-year-old sons along. She said they discussed the election and she wanted her older son to understand that everyone' vote is critical.

A steady flow of people walked in and out of the polling site, many stopping to ask about making donations to the collection of clothing, food and money for Hurricane Sandy victims, which was organized by the school, PTA and Girl Scout Troop 40079.

I voted at St. Augustine's on Main Street at 9AM. Turnout seemed light, yet some of the poll workers were already confused. I'm sorry to say but I think a lot of that is due to their age diminished hearing and sight. I hope these people are not driving. My daughter voted ahead of me and the worker could not find her name on the sign in sheet, even though it was in plain sight on the open page. I wonder if anyone has been disenfranchised by this incompetence. The paper ballot is not an upgrade in the present form. It reminds me of filling out a NYS High School reading exam. The open air polling booth and the use of a Scantron machine allows for too much opportunity to have your ballot seen. Maybe they need to rig curtains around the booths and scanner. The more the powers that be try to "improve"he system the more they seem to go backwards. There has got to be a more efficient way. Let's go back to the lever machines until they figure it out. As Mayor Bloomberg suggested, just order replacement parts for broken machines instead of breaking the system.

I voted at the New street Library at about 6.30 am and have to agree with Lewis Malin's comment on the workers being confused and did mention to my friend that there should be younger folks working at the polls. Y. Graham
