Vox Pop-ular Vote?

Vote here! Shorefront Y in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn

I headed down to Brighton Beach in Brooklyn to check out one of the polling places in the area affected by Hurricane Sandy. The polling place was located at the Shorefront Y about one block from the beach. Signs of Sandy’s destruction are everywhere. The apartments surrounding the Y still didn’t have power. The beach was littered with trash, heaps of debris, waterlogged furniture. Midway through the morning a fleet of National Guard Humvees showed up to deliver goods to hurricane victims still eeking it out without heat, power, hot water. I strung together a quick little piece of some of the folks that I spoke with.  I asked them about how Sandy had affected their trip to the poll this election, oh, and whom they voted for. Take a listen.
