It was a busy first day of early voting in the Bronx, some lining up for hours to cast their ballots.
News 12 spoke with voters outside the Bronx Supreme Court polling place.
"I am just here to make sure my voice is heard,” said one voter. “We really need change in this country and it starts with voting early."
Nearby, elected officials held a rally Saturday to encourage early voting, especially in underserved communities.
Some voters say they were frustrated by the long lines.
“It's worth the wait given what's at stake, but we shouldn’t have to be out here doing a two-hour plus wait,” said one voter.
New Yorkers have nine days to cast their ballots before Election Day. Polling sites close at 4 p.m. on weekends and vary during the weekdays.
