Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Binghamton University Students are excited to vote in what may be their first presidential election.

Due to delays and destruction caused by hurricane Sandy, Governor Cuomo granted voters to cast their ballots at any polling station in New York.

Binghamton University's Old Union Hall was one polling station that student voters had formed a line out the door.

"You could see a lot of people that were concerned because they had sent away for absentee ballots but because of the storm, they didn't receive them so when they came here and found out they could vote, they were ecstatic," said Christie Zwahlen, Binghamton University Community Engagement Coordinator.

In addition to the polling station, the Center for Civic Engagement offered students food, music, and a fun and festive atmosphere to draw in potential voters.
