BROOKLYN - While Brooklyn voters have been coming out in droves on Primary Day, there have been a host of technical issues.

In Bedford-Stuyvesant, for example, there have been reported issues with broken polling machines. Officials say of the four machines at the polling site, only two have stayed functional the whole day.

One broke this morning, but was quickly repaired.

Another broke around 7:00 a.m. and at 4:00 p.m. the machine was still broken.

Poll workers say technicians came to look at the machine this morning and decided there was nothing they could do to fix it. They said another machine was on its way, but until it arrives voters have to use paper ballots.

Because of the technical issues, poll workers anticipate they'll be working after the polls close at 9 p.m. to count up the paper ballots.
