Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump received a mixed welcome at his local polling station in New York City on Tuesday.

Accompanied by his wife Melania and daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Trump arrived just before 11:00 a.m. EST in a motorcade at Public School 59 in midtown east to vote.

After doing his civic duty, the controversial billionaire heard a chorus of boos that drowned out the chants of supporters as he departed.

Outside the school after casting her vote, Krystal End described the atmosphere.

"Definitely, not very pro-Trump, everybody was a little bit frustrated, especially since they shut down the lines for Trump to vote. We're all working. We all have jobs. We're all trying to vote as well, so there was a bit of frustration in line there, but once in, very well organized. A lot of people just eager to get in and cast their vote," she said.

Some voters told Reuters they had waited in line three hours at that polling place.
