State lawmakers on eastern Long Island have introduced a bill that would require every town in Suffolk County to have an early voting site ahead of Election Day — right now, Shelter Island voters need a boat to cast a ballot.
Long Island Congressman Lee Zeldin stuck tight to his familiar themes of patriotism and support for military veterans when he delivered a primetime speech during the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night.
Suffolk County will allow voters to begin casting ballots early. Some polls will be open on October 24 — 10 days before Election Day. But as of now, Shelter Island voters will need a boat to get a ballot box.
