Um..60,000 Brooklyn DEM Votes Vanish

Early today, we posted a thread titled "Warning of Clinton Protocols" warning that those mysterious protocol ways of Hillary must assure her win of the home staye of NY..or she is toast.
.
Now there's a new report out that 60,000 democratic votes have vanished as reported by WNYC. And guess where it happened?

" 60,000 Fewer Democrats in Brooklyn "

Real Strange dealings going on..even before Tuesday.

1. My vote

Those new hipsters were too cool to choose a party and now they can't vote for their artisanal candidate.

7. Actually...

Voters were -- unbeknownst to most -- stripped of party affiliation when they voted by affidavit ballot after Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

It is outrageous.

Conscientious voters who voted despite being stranded away from home were stripped of party affiliation.

2. For your information many Hillary supporters were declared inactive.

 

And the city Board of elections is run by a Republican.

On tv he totally failed to explain this.

4. Explanation: Hurricane Sandy. Voting in 2012 by affidavit ballot stripped party affiliation.

http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2016/04/18/3770355/new-york-voting-open-primary-lawsuit/

Westchester County voter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decided to check on the status of her voter registration last month, after hearing about problems in Arizona’s primary. She was dismayed to discover that, despite being a registered Democrat since 2008, her party affiliation had been changed to unaffiliated. She is now unable to vote for her preferred candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), in the primary.

“I am so hurt that my right to vote in this primary has been taken from me,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a Reddit post explaining her situation.

Ocasio-Cortez was later told by her local Board of Elections that her party affiliation was changed during Hurricane Sandy. The devastating storm hit right before Election Day 2012, and in an emergency measure, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) allowed New York residents to vote at any precinct via affidavit ballot. Ocasio-Cortez was stuck in New York City for the storm, so she voted there instead of in Westchester.

“Apparently when I signed that affidavit my party affiliation was waived,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “I had no idea I was losing my party status when I did that… Had I known this was the case I would have fixed this ages ago.”


This is outrageous. Conscientious voters who went out of their way to vote even though they were stranded away from home were all stripped of their party affiliation. And I would guess, that like Ocasio-Cortez, had no idea of the implications of signing the affidavit ballot would be.

This explains A LOT!

19. I don't know.

Since it was an emergency measure i could see them failing to follow expected procedures. But i don't know.

13. This is something that does need to be looked into

how so many voters registrations are being changed...but this is NOT being caused by Hillary, and I hate to see so many posts come out like this.

It is either errors in the system, or deliberate sabotage of all dems, regardless of this campaign.

I know it's easy to get mad and blame your opponent, but if anyone is guilty of voter disenfranchisement, it is the GOP.

And this part really bothers me:
the number of active registered Democrats dropped there by 63,558 voters between November 2015 and April 2016. That translates into a 7 percent drop in registered Democrats in the borough.


This is a very short period of time. This couldn't be dems leaving the party to go republican and vote for Trump, could it? If the Gop has switched this many voter registration identities, this has got to be uncovered...and soon.

Or this is a typical number of changes close to big elections (only it seems like it should be going up, not down) and someone is trying to use this as a scare tactic?

15. Not true

Hillary voters have also had their registration changed.

I don't know why it's not in the news, but in Nevada or Arizona where it was such a big issue here, it was affecting Hillary voters too.

Why would they disenfranchise their own votes?
