Rigged System Is Controlling Your Vote (Image: Salon)

  • Brooklyn and Queens took a hit this morning in the New York primary voting when voting machines were broken causing belated polling.
  • A lot of voters were skeptical about letting volunteers feed their ballots manually after voting hours.
  • Some polling housed didn’t even open until two or three hours late.
  • Over 200, New Yorkers have filed a lawsuit about closed out of polling houses.

New York primary voting at some Brooklyn and Queens polling places was a disaster Tuesday morning — with early morning voters arriving to broken machines and belated polling.

Queens resident George Mack said he came to P.S. 52 in Springfield Gardens to vote right at 6 a.m. He, and about 50 other early voters, learned all three machines on site were broken. Volunteers at the school told voters to place their ballots in a slot, and they would all get processed later.

“It’s a recipe for disaster,” said Mack, 55, who voted for Hillary Clinton.

“Somebody at the end of the day is gonna feed (the ballots) through a machine? I don’t have confidence in that.”

Meanwhile, voters at the Cooper Park Houses in Greenpoint, Brooklyn couldn’t even get close to a machine. More than two hours after polls were supposed to open at 6 a.m., that site was still closed.

“Cooper Park Houses polling site not open yet,” voter Rebecca Keith tweeted.


“Good morning disenfranchisement.”

A similar snafu happened at the Atlantic Terminal site in Brooklyn, which didn’t open until after 7:30.

“They told me the key to the building had not arrived yet,” voter Tara McCauley told the News.

“I came back at 7:30 and they had just gotten the key. Upon entering, there were no voting machines.”

A Board of Elections representative arrived around 8, she said and told voters he had been busy tending to problems at other polls. Voting finally started at Atlantic Terminal around 8:30.

I am sure there are many people who tried to vote and had to leave who will not be able to come back,” she said.

Reps at the New York State Board of Elections could not immediately be reached for comment, and the press office’s voicemail was full Tuesday morning.

Polls for New York’s closed primary close at 9 p.m.

More than 200 New York voters have joined a lawsuit claiming they were unfairly shut out of the primary after their party affiliation was changed without their consent.
