Department of Justice to Monitor Queens Primary Elections
A DOJ spokesperson did not give a reason beyond that for the agency's decision to monitor the polls throughout the borough as well as in upstate Orange County.
In addition, a department attorney from the civil rights bureau will maintain contact with local election officials, the agency said.
Voters will head to the polls tomorrow to select a Democratic nominee for the 6th Congressional District seat.
The Voting Rights Act prohibits voter discrimination because of race, color or language.
