LIVE UPDATES: Brooklyn residents cast their votes on Election Day

Election Day has finally come, and New York City residents are hitting the polls to cast the last ballots in the hotly contested primaries for mayor and other citywide offices.

New Yorkers had nine days for early voting, from June 12 to June 20, ahead of June 22. According to the city’s Board of Elections, approximately 191,197 residents took advantage of early voting, which is just under 20 percent of the early turnout seen in the November 2020 presidential election in the five boroughs. Across Brooklyn, approximately 65,516 residents — or just 2.5 percent of the borough population — participated in early voting.
