UPPER EAST SIDE — Campaigning is over, and residents of the 12th Congressional District have chosen Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. 

But John Kasich was leading Donald Trump by 70 votes with 100 percent of precincts reporting.  The vote tally is unofficial. Trump's home in Trump Tower falls within the 12th Congressional District.

After weeks of debate, campaign rallies and speeches, voters in the 12th Congressional District — which includes the Upper East Side, Murray Hill and the East Village, as well as Long Island City and southern Astoria — went to the polls Tuesday to pick Republican and Democratic presidential nominees. 

Voters who turned up at the polling place inside Renwick Gardens at 332 E. 29th St. Between First and Second avenues, said while there were no lines Tuesday morning, but it was still busier than they had ever seen it before on primary day.

"It's been crazy compared to most years," said Board of Elections site coordinator Melanie Aucello. "We kind of saw it coming for the past few weeks once we saw who the candidates were going to be."

At the Robert F. Kennedy School on East 88th Street, teacher Emily Einhorn said she was excited to vote for Hillary Clinton.

“It’s awesome voting for a woman as a young woman,” she said. “There’s so much negativity and I think Hillary can be a powerful change agent for good. I want the Democrats to come out on top.”

She said her friends were divided down the middle over voting for Hillary or Bernie.

Jack Grossman, 18, a high school student and first-time voter, said he was happy to be late for school in order to fulfill his civic duty.

“This is my first time voting and I want the best candidate to win,” said Grossman, who voted for Sanders. “Bernie is not influenced by private interests. I think Hillary flip-flops and will do anything to please the private sector."

At MS 131 in Chinatown, Alex Klein said she was torn between the two Democratic candidates until she stepped into the booth and voted for Sanders.

“I don’t think he’s going to win the primary. It was more of a vote of support for what he stands for," Klein said.

Six Democratic and three Republican delegates were up for grabs in the district.
