New Yorkers headed to the polls Tuesday to vote in a state primary that could help shape who will become the Democratic and Republican nominees for president.
With three of the five major candidates touting their ties to New York — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was born here, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was a senator here, and Donald Trump continues to call NYC home — voters were divided as they left their polling stations.
The primary is open only to registered Democrats and Republicans.
Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
