LIVE UPDATES: Brooklyn residents head to the polls to vote in general election


Another Election Day is here, and this time Brooklyn residents headed to the polls for the general election to vote for who will represent their local districts, the borough, and the city.

Polls were open from 6 am to 9 pm on Tuesday, with preliminary results expected later in the evening. Early voting took place from Oct. 23 to Oct. 31, and 47,547 Brooklyn residents — about 28 percent of 169,879 early voters citywide — took advantage of it, according to the unofficial count from the New York City Board of Elections (BOE).

While the competitive primary election in June used ranked-choice voting (RCV) for the first time, the general election did not. Voters across Brooklyn chose just one candidate for each seat on their ballot.
