NEW YORK (AP) - Anthony Weiner almost didn't get to vote for himself for mayor of New York City.
Weiner arrived at his Manhattan polling place Tuesday and found that his signature wasn't in the poll book.
A Weiner staff member called the Board of Elections. Board spokeswoman Valerie Vazquez says Weiner's signature is on file and board staff members told the poll workers to let him vote.
Vazquez says the absence of Weiner's signature from the book was an administrative error.
Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 over a sexting scandal, joked that he is "not very well known."
He joined the mayoral race in May and at one time led in the polls. His poll numbers fell after revelations surfaced that he had continued to send lewd images to women after leaving Washington.
