Many New Yorkers have been taking to social media to alert the New York City Board of Elections (BOE) of problems they've been running into at their polling sites. Most are related to wait times and reports of broken scanners.

The BOE says it has officials deployed to polling sites throughout the city and is investigating any reports of problems voters may be running into.



All New York City voters, except those on Staten Island, will recieve a ballot that's two pages long and needs to be filled in on both sides.

The ballot includes dozens of candidates and three proposals aimed at revising the city charter.

Both pages of the completed ballot must be placed in the scanner to record your votes.

New Yorkers in the city and across the state will be determining several key races.
Andrew Cuomo is up for his third term as governor.

The latest polls show he still holds a comfortable lead over Republican Marc Molinaro, although the race has tightened.

Another big statewide race is for state attorney general.

Both candidates, Democrat Letitia James and Republican Keith Wofford, could make history as the first African-American to hold to the office.

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli is also up for re-election today.

He's running against first-time candidate Jonathan Trichter, a Democrat-turned-Republican.

One of the most closely contested state Senate races is in Brooklyn's 22nd District.

Democrat Andrew Gounardes is challenging longtime Republican Marty Golden in what could be a pivotal race.

In the races for seats in Washington, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is running for re-election.

Her challenger, Chele Farley, has served as finance chairwoman for the New York State Republican party.

On Staten Island, there's a close congressional race in the 11th district between Republican incumbent Dan Donovan and Democrat Max Rose.

And in the 14th Congressional District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is considered a lock to represent Queens and the Bronx after longtime Congressman Joe Crowley in the primary. She's running against Republican Anthony Pappas.
