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 β€” 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 β€” 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.
