NEW YORK VOTER TURNOUT: Unprecedented Turnout in NYC

Norman Eng of the New York Immigration Coalition reports from New York City where polling locations are facing an unprecedented turnout of voters!

New Yorkers line up to vote near 86th Street and Broadway

"Polls opened at 6am in New York, and the story seems to be unprecedented huge turnout at polling sites throughout the city. I went to vote just after the polls opened, thinking that the lines would be short at that time, but I was surprised to find a line snaking all the way down the block, around the corner, and down another block. It's never been like that before. We're hearing similar reports from many other poll sites. It's absolutely amazing!"
