HUDSON — Law enforcement officials are speaking out against parolees, including sex offenders, voting at schools across the state in primaries today, but few schools will be offered as polling places in the Twin Counties.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced April 18 he would issue a blanket pardon giving those under parole supervision the right to vote. There are 36,000 parolees across the state — with an average of about 2,000 added each month.

The measure also gave paroled sex offenders the right to visit schools to vote after 7 p.m., causing alarm among some law enforcement officials.
