Bronx residents cast their votes in NYC mayoral primary


With the influx of homicides and violence, Bronx residents made sure to let local government know that their voices will be heard during Tuesday’s citywide primary.

Since the early morning community members from diverse political viewpoints turned out and turned up to see changes made to city policies — the chief of which was crime. From subway slashings to the wave of broad daylight shootings, crime is one if not the most crucial topic voters say brought them out to the polls this year.

“It’s more important to vote than to just sit back and let things happen, gun violence and the amount of crime right now is really bad,” said Naushod Grant after casting his ballot within Tom Giordano School at 2502 Lorillard Place.
