From BushwickBK.com, where I am updating the 34th District City Council race throughout the day...
Time to go vote. My polling station, which sits on the Bushwick/Ridgewood border is also a middle school. Well, it’s primarily a middle school, and things are quiet in front. Really quiet. Some cheerful Maritza Davila volunteers and a guy with a Diana Reyna sign and a book stand outside across the street.
“People took the literature seemed not aware of the election,” the Reyna guy said.
This is the edge of District 34, but unfortunately I live one block into the 37th District so I can’t vote for a council candidate. No Maritza. No Diana. No Gerry. Tragic.
“It only takes half a block to knock you out. You’re over the borderline,” said Carol Romenick, a Democratic coordinator.
I asked a Republican inspector (Republican!) how many people voted this morning.
“Let’s see, this table has 3, that table has 5 over there, that one has 7, and 12 there.”
