1000s Of Mail-In Ballots Once Deemed Invalid Now Ordered To Be Counted In NYC

• by Ben Wilson

Manhattan Judge Analisa Torres deemed the plaintiffs in the suit had proven that the late votes submitted or un-postmarked ballots had been disenfranchised.

As reported by the New York Post, thousands of the once-disqualified ballots had pre-paid postage yet were never postmarked, which election law then deems invalid.

Many of the votes had arrived after the deadline, as well.

"When voters have been provided with absentee ballots and assured that their votes on those ballots will be counted, the state cannot ignore a later discovered, systemic problem that arbitrarily renders those ballots invalid," Torres wrote in her ruling that essentially throws election laws out the window in favor of chaotic, count-anything policies.
