Ken Thompson, who won the Democratic Primary for Brooklyn district attorney in September and then faced an unexpected race when primary loser Charles Hynes decided to run against him on the Republican and Conservative lines, cast his ballot in the race Tuesday morning.
Accompanied by his wife Lu-Shawn and their two children, Thompson voted at his polling place, PS 11 on 419 Waverly Avenue in Clinton Hill.
"I'm deeply honored and humbled to have the strong support of voters across Brooklyn, and I look forward to serving all the people of this borough as your next district attorney,” Thompson said after he voted.
“We are united in bringing a new vision to restore integrity to our broken criminal justice system. Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent, I will fight every day on behalf of all the people of our borough to keep our streets safe and our communities whole," Thompson said.
Hynes, who has served as Brooklyn DA for 24 years, voted at his polling place in Bay Ridge.
