Board of Elections kills democracy stupidly

NY Post

Major election snafus shortchanged democracy in New York City on Tuesday when poll workers failed to distribute the proper ballots — preventing some voters from taking part in both the Democratic presidential primary and local races.

The problem was apparently so widespread that the Board of Elections tweeted out a warning shortly before noon that said, “In the Democratic primary, voters may have a 2 page ballot!”

“Please check http://nyc.pollsitelocator.com to view your sample ballot,” it added.

In Queens, where Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim is being challenged by NYPD Sgt. Steven Lee, a poll worker at Junior High School 189 in Flushing said some voters only got one ballot.

“There were two ballots, we didn’t know that. Early this morning, we just gave one ballot. So some people didn’t get two,” the worker said. “We found an hour into it. We didn’t get training because of the virus.”

The worker’s disturbing revelations were cut short by a BOE supervisor, Stella Lu, who insisted everything was fine. “There was just confusion because we are short people. We have half the staff today,” she said.

“The people who had this issue actually got the ballot. It was only because people had to wait a little bit longer.”

Good job NYC electing AOC in the primary. Let’s see who she drives away this time.

I like her new friend 'Mystery Mike' Gianaris ... an old Crowley loyalist. (snicker)

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals
That they worship will be gone

And the men who spurred us on
And the judgment was all wrong
Decide and let the shotgun
Sing the song, woo

Yeah, I'll tip my hat
To the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin and change all around

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss...............

Even short people should be able to do a better job than this!

I took the training to be a poll-worker but never worked an election. I wrongly assumed that I'd be stationed somewhere in my own community. At next election, I was told to report to a polling place near my residence (great!), and once there saw that there were HUNDREDS of new poll workers waiting (god knows how long!) for their first assignment. We were told we might be sent ANYWHERE IN QUEENS-- a HUGE borough! We'd be taken there by bus but would have to find our own way home-- after 10PM. The NY polling system is a mess.
