22,000 votes got spoiled in Queens election results

Queens Eagle

New York’s arcane election laws are preventing some candidates and election observers from reviewing nearly 22,000 invalidated ballots, say a group of Queens political activists.
The Board of Elections only allows candidates and election attorneys to review copies of ballot envelopes deemed invalid if they receive a court order to do so. A spokesperson for the BOE, Valerie Vazquez, said people who request copies of the envelopes with a court order also receive a notation of the preliminary determination, which explains why an absentee ballot was tossed by election officials. It could be that the envelopes were filled out incorrectly or were not postmarked, she said. Campaigns, usually through election attorneys, can then challenge those disqualifications.
Overall, 21,980 ballots were preliminarily disqualified, according to a handwritten breakdown provided by BOE officials to members of the New Reformers, a political organization that represents a slate of candidates for Democratic district leader positions. 
  In an email exchange shared with the Eagle, BOE attorney Steve Richman told attorney Arthur Schwartz, who represents 20 Queens candidates, that the candidates did not submit a request to review ballots by a Wednesday morning deadline. Schwartz countered that the deadline applied to a review of registration records and not to observe invalidated absentee ballot envelopes.
“Why do you have to be Mr. Difficult. Let the observers look at the envelopes which aren't being opened. Maybe it will enhance your reputation of being open and transparent,” Schwartz wrote.

22,000 people wasted their time.

Voting is a waste of time

I knew a guy who worked for elections and he told me emphatically that its a mess. Ballots regularly go out to people that have been dead for YEARS!

Now what happens to those ballots on election eve?

Its so stupid when you hear that 'election fraud is almost unknown' (a statement always made by an official and parroted by a reporter of a left leaning - read biased - news service).

What we need is Fox or The Federalist to do an in depth report on those ballots. It is no accident that the NYS/NYC officials are pushing non-machine ballots - this recent election was a dry run for November when the results will not be announced until after January when Trump has to vacate his office and a Democratic Congress will put in Biden as President.

Notice how after election night when a Republican wins over the course of the next weeks there is a mountain of paper ballots that always are heavily tilted in the favor of Democrats after counting? Ya, sure, overseas enlisted personnel right?

The fact of the matter is that the Democratic press is so rabidly against Trump that no one in favor of him will ever say so to the pollsters. This rioting that is bringing back the virus (notice how they focus on cowboy bars in Texas and not black beaches in the Carolinas or radical marchers in Washington which is a bad off a the South)?

All this counts as a landslide for Trump. And if that upsets you, place the blame squarely on the Dems who just wasted 3 years on our dime going after him as opposed to drafting legislation to benefit you and me.

Could be a reason why, other than the misguided New York voters, the Democrats always win every election in NYC.

The sad part is that the votes get thrown out because people do not read the instructions that are given in many languages. However, it is called voter supression when these rules are enforced. Voters supress themselves by not reading. Want to blame society? Sure, what party controls the NYC public schools that AOC's family ran away from for her formative years?

I want to know if my ballot has been invalidated and why. Will BOE notify all 22,000 voters?

Captain Al said...

Considering the number of ballots sent to dead people, is it time for all voters to have a Voter ID?

Paul said...

So many people can’t figure out how to vote. Better their vote is cast away if you’re that dumb.

Democrats: "No voter ID! Open borders! Mail-in voting!"

Democrats want mail in voting now you know why !
GEE, it couldn't possibly have anything to do with flooding the country with illegals and then automatically registering them to vote when they go to the DMV and hospital....

and yet Board of Elections Executive Director Michael Ryan keeps his job after so many screw ups.... and has the nerve to throw a temper tantrum when he is called out on them.

They are just getting started counting TODAY?!? What are they doing, making things official after a committee has set things 'right'?

What a joke - I bet they were faster in horse and buggy days.

Since the dead cat from Atlanta was eligible to vote, everyone should be able to vote by mail

There is a reason the Democrats want the mailing mess and to get away from tidy machines:

❝Virus or no virus, nothing is keeping me from the polls this November.❞

Sadly, that politically indoctrinated way of 20th century, brainwashed thinking is merely symbolic of 'paper tiger'(reactionary) allegiance, which lends complete credibility to: ❝If voting made any difference, they wouldn't let us do it.❞ ——Mark Twain

Besides, the oligarchical powers that BE, have already cemented a second term for their incumbent, TRUMP, all of whom will NEVER cede all unearned, undeserved power and control back to the entrenched, hyper-corrupt, establishment-rigged, techno fascist obedient DemonRats who SO ORDERED a TRUMP presidency in the FIRST F**KING PLACE.

Meanwhile, WHAT, if anything (besides demanding impeachment for TRUMP over the course of the past three years, which ISN'T A PLATFORM), have the opposing, intolerant extremist, party-machine-failed CULT better known as the DNC (Does Not Care - about democracy), done by way of ACTUAL legislation that would make single payer, universal healthcare FINALLY become a reality after more than six decades of languishing in BrainWashington, DC; a $30/hour minimum wage (the correct inflationary index for keeping pace with ever climbing inflation in 2020 - NOT 30 years ago in 1989), and hands on, ACCOUNTABLE and VISIBLE help for the elderly, homeless, veterans and everyone else who is languishing under this dystopian, post capitalist society of epic government, humanitarian, ecological, fiscal and spiritual fail?

Do you see any pretense of DNC leadership that leads by example? NO? Well, they couldn't care less either, because when TRUMP is reelected, THEY don't lose, they win, because nothing in their cushy, exclusionary life will ever be disrupted, and everything continues to hum along swimmingly for these empowered idiots of epic, DemonRat fail. Besides, if ever there was a clearer example of why TRUMP will instantly be reelected (selected, not elected), then it would be a senile, 20th century, warmed over, warmongering, intensely incompetent, establishment-rigged, cradle-to-grave hustling, BrainWashington, DC parasite like Joe BYE-DONE.

❝People spend so much time mocking President Donald TRUMP, or waiting for him to be impeached. And, the danger with that kind of obsession with a single person is that you don't see the system that produced him.❞ ——Arundhati Ray, Indian novelist, human rights and environmental activist

You gotta wonder how much money TRUMP has, if he is able to hire the entire Democratic Party to run his reelection campaign!

Republican agenda: Cutting funding for social programs, privatizing everything to create taxpayer funded profit centers for a handful of people, destroying workers' rights, refusing to increase the minimum wage. Bottom line, doing anything that benefits the many. That's the Republican agenda.

But, when was the last time that the Democrats really fought for a program that benefited the many? They've had all kinds of excuses for not fighting for them (the Republicans wouldn't allow it) and all kinds of excuses for voting for the destructive Republican legislation, but when it comes to down to fighting for We, the People, they're missing in action.

Voting doesn't take inspiration, and you cannot vote yourself out of a rigged and corrupt system. The game is rigged, and the only people still excited about our system and voting to their heart's content are all of the public fools who are still asking themselves what life is about. Democrats aren't anti-war. They're very much pro-war and McCarthyites which actually makes them right of the Republicans in some areas. Someone recently pointed that out in a thread.

But, those same conservative religious people would be against the government helping the needy and that's a Republican position. To quote Sister Simone from Nuns on the Bus, charities cannot raise enough funds to reach all of the people in need which is why the government needs to help as well.

❝It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.❞ ——Jiddu Krishnamurti

❝One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.❞ ——Carl Sagan

Voting by mail is a terrible idea but it's being pushed hard by the Far-Left.
The resignation this week of Bari Weiss at the NY Times confirms what many people already have known. The New York Times is biased to the left, and promotes the socialist radical agenda of the Democratic party.
