Early voters cast ballots in presidential election in New York City

New York City residents headed to the polls to vote early in the US presidential election on Saturday. Hundreds of early voters could be seen queuing outside the polling station at Madison Square Garden. “I have been here since 9.30 this morning and people were in the line down the block. I think people are very excited that today is the first day we can actually vote and people have been anxious about this and excited about this so they are taking their opportunity,” Paul Devin, a local. While the presidential election is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 3, early voting is already underway in many states and over 50 million Americans are estimated to have already cast their ballots, with observers predicting record turnout.
