Special election to replace George Santos likely to be affected by heaviest snow in two years

Today is the special election in New York’s 3rd Congressional District, and the last chance for voters to decide who will represent a section of eastern Queens and much of Nassau County. 

But in the wake of a winter storm warning, which is bringing the heaviest snow the region has seen in two years, concerns about low turnout have been heightened. The snow is expected to taper off in the early afternoon, but slippery roads will continue to make travel conditions difficult for voters of this competitive, and close, election.
