Don't be surprised if you arrive at your polling site today to find that many or all of its optical-scan voting machines are inoperable, as reports on Twitter from around the city indicate that this is happening with seeming regularity. You'll still be able to fill out a ballot, but instead of scanning it, you'll place it in a box, and it might even get counted, maybe, at some point. 

 Calls to two Board of Elections press representatives were not answered, and both mailboxes were full.
