Rye guy and Westchester County boss George Latimer held his weekly COVID-19 briefing on Monday from White Plains. He reminded everyone that “election day is at hand” and encouraged people to doublecheck their polling locations as some have changed. Latimer said that there have been 152,000 people voting early across Westchester and that number is a full 36% of the total number that voted in the last presidential election.
