“One scanner was completely fine, one was temporarily down but quickly fixed and the third and last scanner was not working at all as of 6:30,” explained one voter.

In Brooklyn, the Bereukelen Community Center experienced an issue that may, unfortunately, result in busy voters being unable to cast their ballots. One voter told PIX 11 that poll workers were unable to open the doors to the polling place because they didn’t have keys to get into the building. As a result, voters were instructed to return at 7 A.M., a full hour after the polls were supposed to open. In the end, firefighters had to show up and force their way inside.

Hopefully, all of these issues are resolved in a timely fashion. No American should be denied their right to vote, and now more than ever it’s crucial that every voice is heard.
