Live Election Updates: Morning turnout low as primary heads toward the afternoon

Date:

12:40 PM – Do approvals really matter? For some voters in the 12th District, they were decisive.

Leslie Gold said: The New York Times’ Jerry Nadler’s approval helped her dissect the differences between the longtime rep and his longtime colleague Carolyn Maloney in the newly drawn district. And while newcomer Suraj Patel campaigned for the promise of new ideas and energy, Gold said she appreciated Nadler’s seniority.

“I want a powerful person who has the power to represent my district,” she said outside Robert Wagner Middle School on Tuesday, pointing to Nadler’s chairmanship of the House Judiciary Committee — a role that gave him star power during the Trump impeachment process. .

“I didn’t know how to distinguish them and I think the Time approval was important to me because it really set out the ways they are different,” Gold said. has no experience.”

Gold’s neighbor, Michelle Bornstein, said she too was on the Time approval, as well as that of Senate Leader Chuck Schumer, to help decode her to vote for Nadler.

“It helped a bit to be honest, because we’d been back and forth about this for a long time,” Bornstein said, adding that she and her daughter Time approval together.

“I was actually in the Maloney camp for a long time and my daughter was in the Nadler camp,” she said. “With a local candidate – number one – I want to know that they are invested in this city and that they are not here as a stepping stone to a bigger office elsewhere.”

11:30 Voters trickled into a polling station all morning at Park Slope’s arsenal in the heart of brownstone Brooklyn, agonizing some over which candidate to select in the crowded, wide-open race for the 10th congressional district.

“They all sound good to me, so it was a little tricky,” said Tylor Robinson, 30, although he eventually chose Representative Mondaire Jones, who currently represents another district, after hearing recommendations from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and US Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey.

Others said they were persuaded to Manhattan Assembly member Yuh-Line Niou by an endorsement from the Working Families Party, and to Manhattan Council member Carlina Rivera by the New York League of Conservation Voters.

Sabine Horner, 40, said her motivation in the polls was determined less by who she wanted to win and more by who she didn’t want.
