Roosevelt Island Election Polling Locations - Where Do Roosevelt Islanders Go To Vote On Tuesday, November 4
In the general election, residents of the WIRE Buildings (Westview, Island House, Rivercross and Eastwood (now known as Roosevelt Landings), Manhattan Park as well as Southtown's 465 and 475 Main Street vote at PS/IS 217 (645 Main Street).
Octagon residents vote at the adjacent Coler Hospital.
Residents of Southtown's 425 Main Street vote at Goldwater Hospital just south of the 59th Street Bridge.
There is some confusion where residents of Southtown's 455 Main Street will vote. The Board of elections polling locator indicates that 455 residents vote at Goldwater Hospital but upon inquiry to the NYC Board of Elections by the Main Street WIRE we learn:
Residents of 455 Main Street are assigned to one of two different voting locations, depending on their election district, according to the New York City Board of Elections. Some vote at Goldwater Hospital, while others vote at PS 217. The Board of Elections told The Main Street WIRE in an e-mail that voters were informed of their polling place by mail.For more information, visit the New York City Board of Elections poll site locator or call 1 866 VOTE NYC. Polls wil be open from 6 AM - 9PM.
For the Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Common Council Election, the Main Street WIRE bulletin provides the following information.
All Roosevelt Island residents 18 and over are permitted and encouraged to vote in the RIRA election, regardless of national citizenship or their registration status for the general election.
Most Islanders will vote, in the RIRA election, at Public School 217, where election machines will be set up in the lobby area. Residents of The Octagon, 888 Main Street, are the exception. For them, a voting machine will be set up across from the retail store in the lobby area. While RIRA voters must be 18 or over, the only other requirement for voting in the RIRA election is Roosevelt Island residency, with a simple residency proof requirement such as presentation of a utility bill, driver's license, or other documentation of an Island address.
Islanders voting in the RIRA election need not be citizens of the United States. Furthermore, U.S. citizens who are not registered to vote in the general election may still vote in the RIRA election.
Polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
