Of the 14% of Brooklyn Democrats purged, how many were wrongly purged? How many even voted?

How many would have voted for Sanders instead of Clinton?

1. "There were 121,056 city residents who voted by affidavit ballot because their names were not on"

3. how many of these 121k residents

5. Good questions. I see no one can respond with truthful responses-or knowledge.

6. I would not be surprised if the majority of them were for Hillary

Since she won more votes in Brooklyn overall, and she is more popular among minorities, who have a higher rate of being disenfranchised.

Disenfranchisement is wrong, no matter who they would have voted for.

9. I don't think there's enough information yet, but the investigation is ongoing.

[url]http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2016/05/15/attorney-general-voter-purge/[/url]

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman opened an investigation after his office received more than 1,000 complaints, mainly from voters turned away from casting primary ballots that included presidential races.

Members of his office’s Civil Rights Bureau met last week with city board officials to follow up on the list.

They are looking at the sample list for patterns or consistent trends that indicate larger registration issues statewide.

The office plans to ask several election boards in other counties to further investigate complaints there.

Some complainants said they were longtime registered Republicans or Democrats whose party status was changed without notification.

The Board of Elections told CBS2 last month that these types of problems happened in previous years.

“The problems were on par with other years, but more media attention has been paid to this primary because of the candidates,” the board said


I'll keep an eye out for more detailed reports.
