FARMINGVILLE, NY (OnSachem.com / OnTownMedia.com) — The line stretched by the 100s – and even by more than a 1,000 – as voters turned out on Saturday for the first day of early voting at a polling place in Farmingville.

This is the second consecutive year of early voting in New York State. However, unlike last year where there was only a trickle of voters and no line, the turnout this year was tremendous.

Outside the Town of Brookhaven Town Hall polling location in Farmingville, vehicles backed up along South Bicycle Path as voters attempted to park at town hall. Upon their arrival, voters found a line with hundreds of people waiting between 90 minutes to two hours to vote.

At least one voter called the day’s early voting historic. And compared to last year, the turnout alone makes the first day of early voting for 2020 historic. Some voters said they were inspired to ensure they can have their voices heard during this presidential election year.

OnSachem’s Jim Green headed to the polls to talk with several voters and NYS Assemblyman Doug Smith who approved of early voting in the NYS Legislature last year.
