Some Polling Places Have Lines and Malfunctions, Some Have Bake Sales!


Above is the massive line today in Prospect Heights, where some voters have been waiting for over an hour and a half to pull the lever. In Inwood, we hear, at the Baker Field polling center on 218th, there have been huge lines since 6 a.m. and 90-minute waits as well. Reports Vulture's Dan Kois: "One machine broken, total insanity inside through most of the morning hours. Now thinning out a bit." A reader told us that in Harlem, lines were up to two hours, and at P.S. 10 in Park Slope, according to New York's Kaitlin Jessing-Butz, there is a bake sale! "Someone had made a plate of elephant and donkey-shaped 'Voting Cookies,'" Kaitlin tells us. "At about 9 a.m., they had one Democrat cookie left, while the Republican ones looked pretty untouched."
