Will the city make history today? With races that include the city's first openly gay, female mayoral candidate, as well as embattled former politicians attempting to write their next chapters, Tuesday's primary elections are sure to produce some fascinating results.

Primary day will also mark the presence of another important player. Due to complications surrounding electronic voting, New York City's Board of Elections decided to dust off the manual voting booths of days gone by. Yes—we're talking about those clunky grey booths with the big red levers. The vintage machines weigh more than 800 pounds!

For more information on where to vote, visit nyc.pollsitelocator.com, or call 866-VOTE-NYC. Polls will remain open till 9 p.m.
