State Legislators, Local Officials Call For Probe Of Albany Absentee Ballots

The Albany Times Union reports  on “a letter signed by 40 local elected officials calls on the state Board of Elections, state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Albany County District Attorney David Soares to “undertake an investigation of wrongful activity in the absentee ballot process” in this year’s primary and general elections in city and county races.

The letter, released Monday morning ahead of a planned 10 a.m. press conference outside the offices of the state Board of Elections, comes several days after the Times Union reported about concerns that voters in certain city races were being misled on valid reasons for absentee ballot voting — particularly in the 11th Ward race, where incumbent Common Councilman Judd Krasher is running on the Independence Party line after losing the Democratic primary to challenger Alfredo Balarin.”
