Update at 11:13 a.m.
St. Margaret's Church in Pearl River is the only polling location in Rockland County with power issues. They have enough for lights, but not heat, so poll workers are fighting the chill while they help voters. Members of the National Guard are there to install a generator to help.
Poll workers at St. Margaret's and Pearl River Public Library report a heavy turnout Tuesday morning.
Orange & Rockland restored power to five other polling locations late Monday.
