Will day two of early voting bring a long line again in Farmingville?

The polling location outside Brookhaven Town Hall in Farmingville on Saturday.


FARMINGVILLE, NY (OnSachem.com / OnTownMedia.com) — Sunday is day two of early voting in New York State. If this second day of open polls is anything like the first day on Saturday, expect a long wait to cast ballots.

The polls are open Sunday, Oct. 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. In and near the Sachem area, the early voting locations are:

Town of Brookhaven

Brookhaven Town Hall, 1 Independence Hill, Farmingville

Town of Islip

Islip Town Hall Annex, 401 Main St., Islip

Town of Smithtown

Nesconset Elementary School, 29 Gibbs Pond Rd., Nesconset

On Saturday, the start of early voting brought out thousands of voters across Suffolk County, including 100s – and possibly more than a 1,000 – at a time to Town of Brookhaven Town Hall in Farmingville.

The presidential election, plus congressional and state races, attracted crowds of voters determined to cast their ballots on the first day.

Outside Brookhaven Town Hall, vehicles backed up along South Bicycle Path as voters attempted to park. 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.

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