In NY State of Politics, from Nick Reisman: “The Rockefeller Institute in a blog post published Tuesday took a rumor that has been circulating on social media, mainly by opponents of holding a constitutional convention: The claim that failing to vote yes or no in the November referendum will automatically be recorded as a “yes” vote.
This is bunk, and the Rockefeller Institute debunks it:
“If a voter leaves the question of convening a ConCon blank on their ballot, whether because they miss the proposal or by design, it will simply be counted as a blank vote. End of story. In other words, only those individuals who voted ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on whether to hold a ConCon are counted.”
