NEW YORK - Mayor Michael Bloomberg is bashing the city's ballot system as he prepares to leave office.

The mayor says that the days of secret ballots are over because the new electronic voting system allows poll workers to sneak a peek.

Bloomberg claims it even happened to him last Tuesday when he fed his ballot through the scanner machine.

The head of the Board of Elections says the mayor's complaints will be reviewed.
