NY Gov. Cuomo is suggesting the city Board Of Elections forego resending ballots to more than 99K Brooklynites who got imperfect ballot form paperwork in the mail. Since the paperwork blunder happened distinctly on return envelopes, Cuomo’s administration said just the envelopes ought to be disdain, not the real ballots, which didn’t contain blunders. His team’s suggestion comes after the Board of Elections requested Phoenix Graphics, the organization liable for printing the ballots and envelopes, to resend the whole bundle to Brooklyn voters influenced by the mix-up.
“We don’t control the board of elections, but our recommendation was that sending corrected envelopes will ensure that any person that got an erroneous envelope can still vote,” said Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi. “There is nothing wrong with the actual ballots and sending 100,000 duplicate ballots seems to be an overcorrection.” One Albany insider said Cuomo’s rationale behind the step was he would not like to give Trump any grain for his claims that mail-in voting is tormented by misrepresentation, asserts that have been over and again disproven. During Tuesday night’s presidential debate, Trump brought the voting form disaster up in New York, however as opposed to highlighting Brooklyn where it happened, he only mentioned Manhattan.
