Early voting for Roosevelt Island opens, thanks to Seawright, RIOC and the BOE

Early voting for Roosevelt Island is now ongoing at Sportspark, right around the corner from the Tram and an easy Red Bus stop. State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright pushed for approval, RIOC president/CEO Shelton Haynes provided the site, and the Board of Elections said, “Yes.”

With handicapped access in place and the usual team of volunteers rounded up by Judith Berdy, it couldn’t be easier.

So, look, avoid the lines and the wait and get your vote in. The poll volunteers are ready to help, and you can appreciate the privilege of Roosevelt Island having a place of its own.
