EITHER THAT OR YOUR RUNNING OF NYC REFLECTS MONUMENTAL INCOMPETENCE!

LostMessiah, April 20, 2016

Rockland County residents have been claiming foul regarding voting and rolls’ numbers for years. They have reported “busloads full of people” being carted to Rockland from communities like Borough Park, mere hours before the polls close. Whispers within the ultra-Orthodox community claim that the community leaders have voting down to a science and have made manipulating the voting registries an art form. Members of the non-Orthodox community in both Rockland and Orange counties have claimed  foul and duplicate voting, both in Brooklyn and in Rockland County, allegedly made easy by a lack of identification required to cast a vote, the ability to be “inactive” and the failure of the City of New York to update its voter registration roles.

We have been told by numerous sources, that the ease with which voters can cast votes both in Brooklyn and in Rockland and Orange Counties is further solidified by the closeness of names, family names, spelling, addresses, etc. etc. One poll watcher told us, however lacking in eloquence the statement may have been, “They all look the same. They could tell us they are Joe Shmo and we would not know the difference. We need to check the signatures and if they look the same, we do not have any reason to prevent someone from voting.”

Mayor de Blasio’s comment: “I admit that Brooklyn has had a lot of transient population – that’s obvious. Lot of people moving in, lot of people moving out. That might account for some of it. But I’m confused since so many people have moved in, that the number would move that much in the negative direction.”  supports the position in both directions, into and out of Brooklyn. With a transient population it is hard to keep track. Without a legal and impervious system of checking identification, “confusion” creates holes which simply opens the door for voting fraud.

We wonder whether the next time Dov Hikind is up for re-election if those same roles will increase, rather than decrease. See additional comment below in red.

De Blasio Demands Explanation, as Decline in Registered Brooklyn Democrats Doubles

“Mayor Bill de Blasio has ordered the New York City Board of Elections to investigate why more than 63,000 registered Democrats were dropped from the voting rolls since last fall.

The request comes the same day a WNYC analysis revealed the largest decline in active registered Democrats statewide was in Brooklyn. (UPDATE: The New York state Attorney General’s Office is now reporting a spike in problems at polls, particularly in Brooklyn.)

But new data provided by the city Board of Elections on Monday indicates it actually removed 126,000 Brooklyn Democrats from the rolls, according to executive director Michael Ryan.

That includes 12,000 people who moved out of the borough, 44,000 people who were moved from active to inactive voter status and 70,000 voters removed from the inactive voter list.

As a Brooklyn Democrat himself, de Blasio said he’s concerned about the sudden slump of Democrats on the voter rolls there.

“This number surprises me,” said de Blasio, “I admit that Brooklyn has had a lot of transient population – that’s obvious. Lot of people moving in, lot of people moving out. That might account for some of it. But I’m confused since so many people have moved in, that the number would move that much in the negative direction.”

Board of Elections Executive Director Michael Ryan confirmed he had been contacted by the mayor’s staff and he shared with WNYC the same explanation he said he gave them.

“Brooklyn was a little behind with their list maintenance tasks,” said Ryan, who said the other boroughs update their lists on a rolling basis.

That backlog meant the Brooklyn voter rolls needed a major clean up. The board can only remove people from its lists at certain times of year. There are blackout periods that exist 90 days before federal elections.

Ryan said Brooklyn election officials fell 6 months to a year behind updating their voter rolls.”

The New York Post Reports:

54,000 Brooklyn voters ‘vanish’ ahead of primary day

(Comment: We believe that those voters will re-appear when they are needed to support a Brooklyn candidate and then disappear again when they are needed in Rockland or Orange. We further believe that Councilman Lander and Assemblyman Hikind are probably the last people to be surprised by all of this.)

“In a pre-primary bombshell, the city’s Board of Elections was pummeled with questions Monday about how 54,000 Democratic voters vanished from the rolls in Brooklyn.

The voter rolls on April 1 showed the borough had 853,687 registered Democrats who are considered “active” because they voted at least once in the last four years.

But in November, there were 917,508, or 63,558 more.

The board said the numbers changed because many once-active voters were moved to the inactive list.

But that list grew by only 9,154 voters — from 82,807 to 91,961 — leaving 54,404 Brooklyn voters missing.

Voters on the inactive list can still cast a ballot if they live in the city.

But the “missing” voters are out of luck — their names have been stricken from the records.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said he was “confused” by the discrepancy and would seek an explanation.

“I’ve asked already today for an analysis of this from the Board of Elections,” the mayor said.

Bertha Lewis, director of the Black Institute, called for an investigation.

“There needs to be a probe. We know that 300K-plus have been purged without explanation,” she said.

Brooklyn Councilman Brad Lander called the purge “weird” and “troubling.””

Bill De Blasio Confused by Sharp Drop in New York’s Registered Democrats

 

“This number surprises me,” said de Blasio, “I admit that Brooklyn has had a lot of transient population–that’s obvious. Lot of people moving in, lot of people moving out. That might account for some of it. But I’m confused since so many people have moved in, that the number would move that much in the negative direction.”
The findings arrived the same day that New York residents began flocking to the polls to vote in the state’s presidential primary election.
Board of Elections Executive Director Michael Ryan told WNYC that Brooklyn officials were between six months and a year behind on updating the electoral rolls because of the local elections held across the city in November.
“When there is an election event…work stops getting done,” Ryan said.
Local officials are only able to remove voters from its electoral lists during designated times of the year, with blackout periods 90 days before federal elections, WNYC noted.
Data from the city’s elections board indicated that 12,000 people moved out of Brooklyn, 44,000 people were reclassified from active to inactive voter status, and 70,000 voters were altogether removed from the inactive list.
An analysis from WNYC found that throughout the entire state, Brooklyn had the greatest drop in active registered Democrats this past year.

Amid voting issues, de Blasio calls for ‘major reforms’ at Board of Elections

“De Blasio isn’t the only public official taking notice. A spokesman for State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said his office has already received “by far the largest volume of complaints” in an election since 2011, through a hotline set up to receive the complaints. City Comptroller Scott Stringer on Tuesday afternoon announced his intent to audit the City’s Board of Elections to assess where changes should be made to smooth the voting process.
De Blasio, who voted earlier at the Park Slope Library apparently without incident, said he agreed Stringer’s announcement.
“We support the Comptroller’s audit and urge its completion well in advance of the June elections so corrective action can be taken. These errors today indicate that additional major reforms will be needed to the Board of Election and in the state law governing it,” de Blasio said in his statement.
“We will hold the BOE commissioners responsible for ensuring that the Board and its borough officers properly conduct the election process to assure that voters are not disenfranchised. The perception that numerous voters may have been disenfranchised undermines the integrity of the entire electoral process and must be fixed.””
