Across several neighborhoods in Northeast Brooklyn, voters reported few if any issues with their experience Tuesday morning, often going out of their way to complement election workers as being competent, courteous, and helpful.

However, this could also be due to a relatively modest turnout thus far. From Bushwick to Bedford Stuyvesant to Crown Heights, most voters we spoke to advised of only a trickle of residents within polling places when they casted their ballot. Indeed, scenes inside and outside voting locations had a dearth of pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

We will continue to monitor and have more as voting continues.
