THE BRONX - It's Primary Day in New York City and many residents have been voting since 6 a.m., some with issues at the machines.

Some polling sites have been very busy. In Fordham, election officials say there was a line out the door when the polls opened this morning.

However, some of the voters say they were frustrated because one of the voting machines was broken for at least an hour.

Across the Bronx, similar complaints have been heard, but officials say that since there are more than 5,000 polling sites throughout New York City, minor inconveniences are to be expected.
