Sacrificing A Few Scapegoats Won’t Fix The Bungling Board Of Elections

Today’s New York Post editorial page takes a hard approach to the inability of the NYC Board of Elections to run an efficient election.

The paper opines “Board of Election officials are supposed to make voting run smoothly just a few times a year. Must they always screw up?

Tuesday brought reports of problems all across the city. In Brooklyn, 120,000 voters — one in eight — got dropped from voting rolls between last November and this month.

Elsewhere, folks found closed voting sites, broken machines, inadequate staffing levels and incompetent workers. On Wednesday, The Post ran a picture of one poll “worker” who’d been snoozing on the job.”
