The AP in Albany is reporting today that New York businesses are prepping for post Election results fall out. The most polarizing election in a generation wraps Tuesday, and even in a solidly blue state like New York, candidates for Congress and the state Legislature in a handful of battleground districts will be fighting for every last vote.

The NYPD asked business owners to clear sidewalks of items that could be used as barricades or projectiles, like chairs, tables, construction barrels and trash cans.
Polls close at 9 p.m. Tuesday. A record 3.5 million votes had already been cast as of Monday. That included more than 2.5 million votes cast in early voting and at least another 1 million absentee ballots turned in as of Friday, according to the state Board of Election. Any ballots postmarked by Tuesday will be counted.
