DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. ? Election workers at Dobbs Ferry High School reported a strong turnout Tuesday morning and into late afternoon as residents flocked to polling places.

"This is my first election in New York," 31-year-old Steve Arons said as he left the high school after voting. "I lived in New Jersey and voted there the last presidential election. This was very quick, but it looks like people are excited about voting. It's an important election."

Election inspectors, who did not wish to give their names, sat at the registration table outside the high school gymnasium and guided voters through the process, tracking registration information and supplying provisional ballots to those who were not on the rolls. Voters filled in paper ballots, then placed them in the vote scanner.

"Not a problem at all," Arons said. "It took me maybe 30 minutes to get here from Yonkers and vote. I will follow the election closely at home tonight and hope it goes well."

Dobbs Ferry voters were reminded that the Town of Greenburgh proposition for the Game On 365 athletic facility proposal, a hot topic in the Rivertown villages, was printed on the back of the ballot sheet.
