Bungled NYC Primary Voting Sparks Board Of Elections Probe: ‘It’s Time We Clean Up this Mess

The NY Daily News may have put it best in its story headline, above. The paper saidthat a ” record-setting deluge of Primary Day voter complaints led Tuesday to the angry promise of a full-scale investigation into the city’s long-bumbling Board of Elections.

The flood of gripes, running the gamut from locked doors to botched voter rolls, led irate city Controller Scott Stringer to announce an immediate probe of an incompetent agency.

“Unfortunately in New York City, this is nothing new,” Stringer told a news conference some 10 hours after the polls opened — or didn’t — at 6 a.m. “The next president of the United States could very easily be decided tonight.”
