Polling Issues in Brooklyn

Ten Creole translators from the citys’ Board of Elections were dispatched to the top ten Haitian polling sites in Brooklyn’s 40th Council district, where there’s a special election today.

Joe Placide, a former David Dinkins staffer running Dr. Matthieu Eugene’s campaign, said that there have been issues at some polling sites. “Primarily with Haitian-speaking people, that’s where we are seeing,” he said.

“We’re having a lot of problems.”

The campaign also sent three lawyers to three other polling sites, according to Placide.
