Misleading Instructions, Missing Names Mar Tuesday’s Vote

Michael Gormley reviews many of the election day snafus in Newsday. New York’s Attorney General’s office fielded 1000 phone calls from frustrated voters on Tuesday alone. Gormey highlights “dtories from voters confused, misled and denied their vote in Tuesday’s New York primary were growing Thursday: Some voters statewide who showed up at the same polls they’ve used for years found their names didn’t appear on the rolls kept by elections officials; in one case, several pages of voters’ names were missing; and in other cases voters who had changed their party enrollment found the switch was never transferred on the rolls, denying them a chance to vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary, according to claims made to the state attorney general’s office.”
