Some Flatbush voters waiting hours to cast ballot

Some voters at Vandervere Church in Flatbush have been forced to wait hours to cast their ballots today.

Some voters report up to five-hour waits to vote.

The church is the consolidation of three different elections districts. Voters say the limited space, high turnout and low staffing is the cause of the long lines.
