NEW YORK, NY, Oct. 29, 2010 -- On November 2, reporters can look to Baruch College for a variety of election-related resources including: opportunities to cover voters in action; early takes on voter sentiment and trends in voting patterns; New Yorkers’ reactions to the scanning devices that have replaced traditional voting booths; and commentary from Baruch faculty experts in politics and voter behavior.

Voting and Exit Polls: Baruch College has two voting locations

  • 55 Lexington Avenue, Ground Floor, between E. 24th and E. 25th streets
  • Newman Hall Lobby, 137 E. 22nd Street, between Third and Lexington avenues
  • Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 2

Both sites are convenient “exit poll” locales for members of the press who would like to get instant feedback from people who have just cast their ballots. How did they vote? What did they think of the new scanning devices? Journalists are invited to talk with voters at Baruch’s voting sites throughout the day.
