ALBANY, N.Y. - The Albany County Board of Elections had a busy Primary Day addressing problems that have occurred at the Creighton Storey Apartments in Albany.
A number of voters, including Lupenski, left frustrated from the District 1 polling place at Creighton Storey Apartments because their voter information was missing from the voter registry book.
Lupenski, who tells NEWS10 she waited for more than a half hour to cast her vote, says the official book was missing registered voters with the last names starting with the letter I through M.
"It's chaos and a major problem in my book," Lupenski says. "People fought and died for our right to vote and for them to walk away frustrated over a clerical error, that's sad."
Voter Travis Klami experienced the same issue, waiting for a district voting inspector to find his name in the election book. He eventually left, unable to vote.
Even State Assembly candidate Carolyn McLaughlin experienced a wait when casting her vote Thursday. "My name was in the book, but they should all be in the book," she says.
An employee from the Albany County Board of Elections came to the polling place to address the problem, but in the process had to deal with a jammed machine.
At the District 7 polling place, some voters were faced with a different problem thanks to redistricting. A Board of Elections Commissioner tells NEWS10 people who live on Dove Street were given mixed information about their candidates, but they say it was figured out once they arrived.
This Primary Day is the first held in New York since redistricting moved some voting areas and changed a number of polling places.
