  •  New York State Senate race not over yet (7+ / 0-)

    If any one has interest in this race......

    From this news article

    A state appellate court ruled on Wednesday that 99 paper ballots invalidated in New York’s 46th Senate District race between Republican George Amedore and Democrat Cecilia Tkaczyk must be counted.

    The tally could change the outcome of the race, in which Amedore was certified the winner by 37 votes by a lower court.

    The poll workers ballots getting tossed out has been in the courts in NYS before. They need to use absentee ballots if the polling place they are assigned to work isn't where they are registered to vote. Same old crap about "they could have voted" and absentee should be disallowed.

      for the past two months!  She is so much better than Amedore.  I think this will propel her to the lead -- and consequently the win!  

      27, male, gay, living and voting in IN-7. Joe Donnelly for Senate and John Gregg for Governor!

    •  Do they want nobody to work the polls? (1+ / 0-)

      So, they rejected poll worker ballots because they should have voted the day of even though most locations object to poll workers flitting in and out, standing in line for hours, when they are trying to run an election.  Heck, my county recommended that all poll workers vote absentee, even those who were in precinct, because they didn't want to lose people during the day (poll workers can't cut the line).  Or is this the partisan watcher groups that they are targeting to avoid scrutiny?
