New Yorkers turnout in modest numbers for early voting


New Yorkers went to the polls over the weekend for the first days of early voting in the city’s general election — and as expected, the turnout wasn’t at the fever pitch the city experienced during last year’s presidential race.

Voting locations opened Saturday morning, Oct. 23, and despite many races being effectively decided in the June primary due to Democrats far outnumbering Republicans in the Five Boroughs, residents still came out to do their civic duty.
