Taxpayers in New York are spending a pretty penny on votes.

Board of Elections workers for the city are being driven to and from poll sites in high-class black cars, which cost residents a whopping $9 million in taxes.

The cars are part of a fleet of 400 vehicles being driven through all five of the city’s boroughs, according to report in the New York Post, and they are meant to accommodate election-day officials who otherwise would have to rely on another form of transportation.
