Meanwhile in New York..
"Sorry we don't have any Republican ballots. You will have to vote for a Democrat."
According to that article, it's even worse than that. One person who reported it, a retired Department of Correction deputy warden
, told the Post
he was simply handed a ballot with no attempt to ask what his party affiliation might be. When he opened the ballot, he only saw Democrats listed. He flipped it over expecting to see the Republicans on the other side, but there were none. Only when he asked was he told they had no Republican ballots.
How many people were handed Democrat-only ballots with no explanation, and they filled out the ballot anyway believing those were all the candidates?
Also, why is there no report of DEMOCRAT BALLOTS being unavailable? These problems ALWAYS impact Republican voters. The equipment and locked building problems were likely in majority Republican areas, too.
Some states authorize extended voting hours when there are delays, broken machines, and inadequate ballots, but that's not helping the people who showed up early to vote and can't make it back there before the precinct closes.
I thought NY and other states clamored for making it easier for everyone to vote? I guess that's just a talking point to justify illegally harvesting ballots and using illegal drop boxes.
