NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some New York City voters arrived at their polling places Tuesday to find that machines were never hauled in, supervisors were not present or, in the case of one mayoral hopeful, his signature was missing from the register.
A city spokesman said most of the problems reported concerned voting machines. At the 55th Street and Lexington Avenue site, there were no voting machines when polls opened, the spokesman said. But that was later rectified.
He said problems at a few other sites included no supervisors or enough workers. The spokesman said some people had to vote via affidavit because machines weren’t ready when they arrived.
