PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – The polls at Don Bosco Community Center was filled with a steady stream of voters Tuesday afternoon, but residents voting at other Port Chester locations say turnout seemed low.

Catherine Mackin, a poll worker at Don Bosco Community Center in Port Chester, said power outages have caused more area residents to vote at the center, rather than at their regular polling spots.

“We’ve been getting people from out of the area voting here with affidavits,” Mackin said. “It’s been a pretty good turnout. Some of the other districts have a tremendous amount.”

Port Chester resident Xiomara Fernandez said on The Port Chester Daily Voice Facebook page, “Casted my vote this morning at Corpus Christi! No lines at all, in and out in 10 minutes!” Another resident Mary Capocci agreed that voting went quickly. “Voted at 6 a.m. at the Port Chester High School. Three people there no problems,” she said.

Resident Maureen Holden Josephson wrote that, when she voted at 8:45 a.m. at Edison School, she was number 113 and the polling location was quiet. Another resident, Lauren Cross, echoed similar sentiments, saying, “I voted at Park Avenue School around 7:30 this morning. Very quiet.”
