    More NYC Primary Voters Find Their Names Missing From Voter Rolls

    An untold number of primary voters are arriving at polling sites today only to find that their names are mysteriously missing from the voter rolls. Others have found that their registration has been quietly transferred to new election/assembly districts, or assigned to new parties without their knowledge. Attorneys with the NYCLU say they are currently receiving reports from numerous voters who are shocked to find their names missing from the voting rolls.

     

     

    New York magazine writer Rebecca Traister tweeted about her voting difficulties on Thursday morning, noting that her name had been wiped from the rolls at the Brooklyn site where she’d voted four years running. She showed up around 8:20 a.m. and presented herself at the usual table, but the volunteers couldn’t find her name. They checked and rechecked, she checked and rechecked—her name simply wasn’t in the book. Pressed for time and trying to make a train, Traister filled out an affidavit ballot, which allows unlisted-but-eligible voters to belatedly cast their ballots. In this election, especially, that lag time matters. <SNIP>

     

     

    Apparently, Ballaban was listed as a Reform party voter. This surprised him, as the Democratic party has bombarded him with mailers since he switched over his registration years ago. Ballaban suspects that his former Independent affiliation somehow worked as a wrench in his plans this time around, although he experienced no registration-related problems while voting in the 2016 election.

    3. Well, it was a success for the DNC** last time, amiright?

    Also – remember, the DNC/Democratic Party*** reserves the right to choose all the candidates ANYWAY, so why be surprised?  Primaries are nothing more than pep rallies now.  They do not determine the outcome of the game.

    • *Obligatory disclaimer - when I say "Democratic Party" I mean the DNC - the Clintons and the un-elected people and the consultants and the lobbyists and the corporations who actually run things.  The people who work and vote and are registered as "D" are no more the actual party than Trekkies are Star Trek.   Extra credit - the Democratic Party gets to actually fuck up your life. When you vote for it.
    You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

    4. What a fucking load of corrupt Democrats.

    THIRD PARTY PLEASE!

    "Someone hacks the DNC allowing all of America to see how the DNC operates as one of the most corrupt political machines in national history. Ergo, Hillary Clinton should be installed as President by judicial fiat. And if you do not agree to this scheme you deserve to be brought up on charges of treason because fascism." - NUGrrl, december 2016 “Once a person has been determined to be an UNTRUSTWORTHY LIAR, their pretend stances on important issues are simply not relevant to rational discussion.” – Ida Briggs, September 2016

    6. Those nasty Russians are so damn clever!!

    Oh sure, some people who dabble in evidence might think the New York State Democratic Party is behind this. Or that it’s just an unfortunate mixup. But you and I, we know better!

    7. You didn't think the Democratic Party establishment

    was going to allow true progressives to win did you?

    They cheat every fucking time. How do you think they keep Pelosi, Schumer and Cuomo in office?
