There are reports of long lines to vote this morning... such as seen in the reader-submitted photo here at Theater for the New City on First Avenue, where the line stretches back and around the corner on Ninth Street.
EVG reader Mel shared this:
The long lines at polling places are queues of folks who need to look up their Assembly and District numbers in order to sign in to vote.
To shorten the process, look up your Assembly and District numbers before heading to the polls here.
I knew my numbers, so it took me 7 minutes, start to finish, to vote.
Polls in New York State are open until 9 tonight.
EVG reader Terry Howell just voted at the Theater for the New City... he noted the long lines as well and added, "But if you know your Election District and/or Assembly District number, find a poll worker. They are canvassing the line frequently, and tell them you know your voting districts. They will take you inside and direct you to your table where the line is minimal.
The poll workers are very organized, friendly and helpful. TFNC being cramped as always and the crowd being large, they are doing an excellent job at keeping it moving. Let them guide you. The voters crowd is in a pleasant mood — happy to have it finally done!
