Here's election day, and if my memory serves me well, there were some people here asking if you're registered elsewhere and you moved, can you vote at your new address?...the answer is; yes you can.
It's called vote by affidavit.

NY is a not swing state so Obama is winning this one, but you can still show your discontent by voting 3rd party.
Last night I watched the alternative debate that the establishment doesn't want to show. It was between the libertarian candidate (Gary Johnson) and the green party candidate (Jill Stein). I'm more of a progressive guy so the green party matches at lot of my positions but Gary Johnson was very eloquent and would be 1, 000, 000 times better than the candidates the establishment has chosen for us.

Anyway, I thought on sharing this info with whomever is interested.
Btw New sites have been established for those affected in zone A. Addresses on the link as well.

Cuomo Signs Executive Order Letting NYC Voters Cast Ballots At Any Polling Place - NY1.com
I remember voting by affidavit once when although I received a notice that I was registered at my new polling place after moving, when I got there they couldn't find my name on the list.

As mentioned if one votes by affidavit they can only vote for the President and Senators but not for their local Congressional District.

There is no such thing as fraud-proof...so unless something is 100% fraud proof it should not exist? If we use that bar...nothing would exist.

I thought this was only for residents displaced and only for certain counties...

That's right.
Btw this is apparently is only for voters registered in the five boroughs Westchester, Rockland, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
