Nearly half the polling sites in New York City had problems with a voting machine on primary day. 17 percent of polling sites in Manhattan didn't open on time. And out of 125 poll workers sampled, 54 did not pass the required training.

The report assails the MTA's lax attitude towards overtime and calculates that the Authority spent nearly $600 million last year paying employees time-and-a-half.
