HARDING PARK - Some Bronx voters who came out Tuesday morning to cast their ballots in the presidential election say they ran into trouble at their polling sites.

Voters who went to the Palham Parkway polling place say two out of three voting machines were out of service, and the remaining machine was for handicapped voters only.

At a polling place in Harding Park, some voters say they had to wait in line for up to 45 minutes because the Board of Elections supposedly failed to provide election materials on time.

Still, most voters who turned up at the polls say they don?t mind waiting in line to exercise their right to vote for the next president of the United States.
