Poll workers Stevenson Nurse ushers the crowd of voters to each table, booth, and the exit.

Bronx voters crowded into the gymnasium at P.S. 306 in Morris Heights to vote on Tuesday morning.

The line of voters snaked out the school entrance and down the alley. Stevenson Nurse, a poll inspector, tried to maintain an orderly line.

Voters approached Nurse, one of more than 30 poll workers, to ask for help. Nurse directed people to their respective district’s sign-in tables and the polling location exit.

“It’s been crazy from six, just like this,” he said, “Everything is good.”

Nurse said the only problem had been an incident earlier in the day between a poll worker and a voter. Witnesses said that a verbal argument broke out after a voter became upset by the way a poll worker looked at her.

“She just went crazy. I think she had the street mentality where if someone looks at you the wrong way, you can fight them,” Nurse said.
