New York City should have an easier time voting when they head to the polls for the general election in November.
The New York City Board of Elections voted Tuesday to make the font size bigger on its ballots.
Many complained it was too hard to see the candidates' names in the primaries held earlier this month.
State law requires the font size to be equal on the ballots, which was the reason for the tiny print.
But designers realized if longer names were spread across two lines, bigger letters could fit.
