Ang Santos:  So Bob, in New York City, which is overwhelmingly Democratic, doesn't the primary carry the weight of the General election?

Bob Hennelly:  Absolutely, with the exception of Staten Island and some pockets in Brooklyn, it’s a sea of blue. And once the candidate gets wins in the primary they can start measuring the drapes for their new offices or old office if they are an incumbent.

AS:  Even though Mayor de Blasio is expected to win handily why is he blitzing the airwaves with commercials? 

In New Jersey, it's illegal to take photos of your ballot in a voting booth and share it on social media. The state Assembly has passed a bill that would end that ban.

Assemblyman Raj Mukherji believes that 'selfies' in polling places should be allowed.

"Particularly these days when social media is the most accessible place for people to exercise their freedom of speech, we should be encouraging millennials to tout their political preferences or to display their pride in voting."
