The New York City Board of Elections has made several steps to address concerns that some voters may have trouble with the small font size used for the general election ballots.

The Board says it will be posting enlarged poster-sized ballots at each polling site Tuesday so voters can familiarize themselves with the information before casting their vote.

Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has met the deadline to file thousands of petition signatures for his bid to revive his political career by running for New York City comptroller.

Spitzer said that "over 27,000 signatures" were submitted to the city Board of Elections ahead of a midnight Thursday deadline. It came just four days after the tarnished ex-governor launched his campaign.

Spitzer needs 3,750 valid petition signatures to get on the Democratic primary ballot for September.
