What Voting Means to Us: 24 Women at the Polls

Long lines, freezing temperatures, malfunctioning machines, and convoluted ballots would not deter New Yorkers from casting their vote this Election Day. The Cut sent photographer Chuck Grant and reporter Katie Van Syckle to chat with women at polling stations from East 68th Street and Lexington, up to 143rd Street and Frederick Douglass.

The women — some of whom were voting for the first time — discussed gay rights, school loans, the viability of small businesses, Medicare, equal pay, and, of course, their children. Several brought up Roe v. Wade.
