Board of Elections commissioner: Ballots are easy to understand

The Democratic commissioner of the Board of Elections says the paper ballots that have been used in Westchester since 2008 are pretty easy for most people to understand.
Reginald Lafayette says the ballots have started to come in and are being distributed to the 400 polling sites across the county, with six days before the midterm elections.
"The confusion may come in sometimes with the first-time voters. But I think once you've voted on these ballots, you know, that you should color the circle over the name that you're voting for,” he says.

If you make a mistake on your ballot while at your polling place, don’t worry: legally, residents can get up to three ballots.
Board of Elections officials say nearly 11,000 people have cast absentee ballots so far in Westchester.
