BROOKLYN - The new optical-scan voting machines which replaced the old lever-style machines were the source of frustration for some voters on Primary Day.

Some machines had issues starting up and the issues caused some polling stations to open late. The Board of Elections admits that 71 stations opened late because of the issues.

Because of the issues, Mayor Michael Bloomberg voiced his frustration about the new machines and state Sen. Eric Adams, who represents parts of Brooklyn, called for the commissioner of the Board of Elections to resign.

The Board of Elections says despite the issues, most voters had a positive experience at the polls.
