Cuomo Signs Order Allowing Hurricane Victims To Vote Anywhere

With Election Day turmoil expected because of the ongoing problems caused by Superstorm Sandy, Gov. Cuomo has signed an executive order allowing displaced voters to cast ballots at any polling site.

A person would go to a polling place, sign an affidavit and fill out a ballot anonymously, Cuomo said.

The vote will count for the presidential race or the U.S. Senate race.

But a person’s vote won’t count if they are voting at a site that is not their home state Senate or Assembly district.

“It’s fair,” he said. “You can’t vote for a race that you’re not eligible to vote for.”

“It’s a difficult situation,” he said. “The Board of Elections appears to be working hard to do everything they can. But you have people who are displaced. We’re trying to do the best we can. We want to allow everyone to vote and make it easy as possible.”

NOTE:Celeste got this memo that went out to local boards of electon from the state board.

I tried 3 times to get a search to even return a screen.

Only get a blank.

Andrew Cuomo is one of the biggest crooks in the party. But this sure beats everything. Can he do this? They will vote ANONYMOUSLY? Will they show any ID, or would that be racist?

In this case, “anywhere” is a subset of “everywhere.”

Fortunately, NY was already in obozo’s column.

Huh? This sentence makes no sense.

Unless “any” polling site includes Ohio, he’s just bailing water from one part of the boat to another.

Did he indicate in how many states? We’ve got a lot of New Yorkers down here in Florida, people like former NYCer Deborah Wasserman Schultz. And it has been proven that there has been prior instances of just such bi-state voting.

Many states allow to cast contingency ballots if you are out of your district on election day. They will not allow to vote on local issues but just states national and state if your out of your county. If you in your county you can usually also vote on county wide issues.

Let the governor just declare that all New York registered voters have been recorded to cast ballots for Traitorobama and the Demonicrats and every bond spending proposition on any New York ballot.

New Yorkers will save time and gas, the governor gets all the corruption done with at once, rather than have drag out with charges and countercharges, and it's New York - they're used to bending over for such corruption by now.

Anonymously?!!!

Heck, why do they even have to go anywhere at all?
Can’t they just phone it in?
Be sure to give them an obama phone and tell them to phone in their vote.

GEEZE!

Where is a good lawyer when you need one. Is their not Federal elections laws that prevent this kind of thing without having been approved by the federal government months before the election. I feel sorry for all those people. But they really should not expect the voting system to be turned into a open door for fraud. This is like writing on a blank paper and dropping it into a salvation Army box to be delivered to the state. A liberal wet dream come true.

So typical liberal Democrat New York City voters can vote anywhere...like in Manhattan AND Queens AND Brooklyn AND the Bronx AND Jamaica plus Boca Raton and Miami.

Sorry Andy—ain't gonna help, PIAPS is still gonna be the next NY Gov.

Duomo knows that people in many parts of NY don’t have voting on their mind, they are trying to get gasoline, generators, heat for their homes - the response to this hurricane has been horrendous.
I was down on the South Shore of Long Island all weekend and it is still a disaster area, little to help from FEMA and no end in sight.
Add in a Nor’easter storm coming on Wednesday, the body count will go up.

So, just how many different polling places will liberals get to vote at? How many times will each liberal vote, do you think?

Apparently, it will not matter what they do.

"Hope and Change" will soon be "Nope and Change" and there is nothing they can do about it except get the lawyers out.

Probably several times - at every polling place in the city.

However, there was never any doubt that NYC was going to be Obama all the way, so I don’t think it makes much of a difference.

A person would go to a polling place, sign an affidavit and fill out a ballot anonymously, Cuomo said.

I voted by absentee ballot at my polling place in New York while I was home a few weeks ago. Functionally, that was early voting but using the absentee form. I signed the envelope on the outside like I had the absentee request form (both are probably affidavits), while the ballot itself was anonymous.

Other than getting the right ballot for local races, the requirement to be within your state Senate or Assembly district should make it work out just fine, and there's no attempt here to extend the election.

The difference is Precedent. If they are allowed to do it then it will happen next time too. And in many other places.
This is what the left does. They corrupt everything.

Let’s see, I go to my polling place and on the way, get a flat tire. It makes me so late that I can’t get there on time to vote. On the other hand, Hurricane Sandy has flooded out my house and I am sitting in a shelter 4 miles from my polling place. I have no transportation to get to my polling place. In both cases, you are out of luck with no transportation. What’s the difference?

Hopefully, they have pots of purple dye for the voters to mark their thumbs - worked in Afghanistan.

I feel like a hurricane victim. I’m going to vote in New York, too.

Thanks NoLibZone.

“Gee what could go wrong here?”

Doesn’t matter.

It’s New York State, and we -know- how they’re going to vote.

Just be glad the hurricane didn’t blast through any battleground states.

Could you image if this was done in both Florida and North Carolina?
