New Yorkers were waiting in long lines early on Saturday (October 24) on the first day of early voting in the state for the presidential election.
Outside Madison Square Garden, many voters were excited to cast their ballots while other felt it was more secure than mail-in voting.
New York said last week that it would deploy additional police officers in case of any problems at polling locations or throughout the city.
More than 50 million Americans have cast ballots in the U.S. presidential election with 10 days to go in the campaign, a pace that could lead to the highest voter turnout in over a century, according to data from the U.S. Elections Project.
