Ballot looks fishy (potential fraud attempt)
Advertisements [?]
The ballot for a special City Council election in Queens featuring the fiance of police-shooting victim Sean Bell was redesigned in a way that could leave voters thinking one of her Democratic rivals was on the same ticket as Republican Carl Paladino, The Post has learned.

Supporters of Ruben Wills were in an uproar when they learned that his name would appear in the second row on the ballot in the same column as Republican candidates, instead of in the first column held by the Democrats, led by Andrew Cuomo.

Bell's fiance, Nicole Paultre-Bell, whose name was appearing in the same column as the Independence Party hopefuls, would have likely been the biggest beneficiary of Wills' placement in the GOP column.

The council race on Nov. 2 is nonpartisan, meaning Paultre-Bell and the other six candidates are running under the banners of their own independent parties.
