Khurshid Janjua helped his wife, Fakhra, vote for the first time this morning at P.S. 62 in Brooklyn. The couple, who are originally from Pakistan, have lived in the United States for nearly 20 years, but it wasn’t until recently that Fakhra became a U.S. citizen. The @nytimes staff photographer @heislerphoto took this photo while on #nytassignment in Brooklyn. At last, Americans are set to decide between @hillaryclinton and @realdonaldtrump today.
