PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – Residents throughout Westchester may be out of power, but the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy won’t stop Port Chester voters from heading to the polls Tuesday.

The Westchester County Board of Elections decided not to change any polling locations and will provide generators to any station without electricity.

On the ballot is the United States Presidential race with incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama facing off against Republican former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Another race on the ballot for Port Chester voters is the U.S. House of Representatives District 17, with Rep. Nita Lowey (D-Harrison) seeking re-election against Joe Carvin (R) and Frank Morganthaler (WTP).

The hotly contested District 37 race will pit current State Assembly member George Latimer (D-Rye) against real estate businessman Bob Cohen (R) for the state Senate seat being vacated by Suzi Oppenheimer.

In the 91st New York State Assembly District race, Steve Otis (D) will face off with William Villanova (R) for the seat being vacated by Latimer.

Port Chester will hold its village elections in spring 2013. Designated polling locations can be viewed online. If you have trouble locating your polling place, contact (914) 995-5700.
