Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump exits the polling station after voting for the New York primary election in the Manhattan borough of New York CityBy Emily Flitter and Susan Cornwell NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump were favored to win their parties’ U.S. presidential nominating contests in New York state on Tuesday, but voting was overshadowed by official confirmation that more than 125,000 people were missing from New York City voter rolls and reports of other irregularities. New York City’s comptroller ordered an audit of the city elections board after it confirmed the people’s names had been removed from voter rolls. “The people of New York City have lost confidence that the Board of Elections can effectively administer elections and we intend to find out why the Board of Elections is so consistently disorganized, chaotic and inefficient,” Comptroller Scott Stringer said in a statement.
