Early voting starts in 60th Assembly District, but few seem to notice


Early voting began this weekend in the special election for East New York’s 60th Assembly district — yet few potential voters seem to have gotten the memo, despite the potentially-competitive nature of the referendum. 

Voting began on Saturday, but only 90 people showed up to the polls over the first three days of early voting, according to the city Board of Elections. The district has a voting-age population of over 100,000 people, meaning that less than 0.09 percent of eligible voters have participated in the election thus far.
