Meanwhile, due to the need for greater distancing between people during the COVID-19 pandemic, Binghamton University has found it needs more space for voting November 3 at the polling site on the Vestal campus.
The University, which encompasses three of Vestal’s 19 election districts, has hosted an on-campus polling site for residential students since at least the 1970s.
Since people need to be kept at least 6 feet apart, the campus polling site will be relocated to the Events Center for the November 3rd election.
