Several BX polling places experience problems

Several polling sites in the Bronx got off to a rough start on Election Day.



Voters expressed their frustration at the Sonia Sotomayor Center when poll workers didn't have access to ballot boxes. People who went to the Einstein Loop Community Center experienced similar problems. 



A poll worker told News 12 that all five of the center's scanners, including a machine for the handicapped, broke down. 



The poll worker said at one point, close to 200 people were waiting in line to cast their vote.
