City voters arrived to local voting sites to cast their ballots for Mayor of New York, Public Advocate, Comptroller, City Council and District Attorney in Tuesday’s Democratic Primary Election.
As a standby poll worker, I was thrilled to involve myself in such an important civic duty. Being an African American, exercising the right to vote holds importance to my life due to the blood, sweat and tears my ancestors fought for. With that in mind, being placed as a standby poll worker would be an exciting experience.
