New York Judge Rules that Continued Absentee Mail-In Voting Based on COVID is Unconstitutional

A judge in New York ruled that the continued use of COVID as the excuse for using absentee ballots in elections is not constitutional. 

The New York Post reported on this ruling out of the state:

Allowing New Yorkers to vote by mail due to fear of COVID-19 is unconstitutional, a state judge said Friday in a ruling that Republican and Conservative Party leaders hailed as a victory for fair elections.

The 28-page ruling by Saratoga County Supreme Court Justice Dianne Freestone ordered local boards of election to stop counting the absentee ballots they’ve already received.

FOX News reported yesterday on this development in New York state:

A judge in New York ruled that voting by mail over fears of the coronavirus is unconstitutional.

The Democrat-controlled legislature “appears poised to continue the expanded absentee voting provisions of New York State Election Law … in an Orwellian perpetual state of health emergency and cloaked in the veneer of ‘voter enfranchisement,'” Saratoga County Supreme Court Justice Dianne Freestone, a Republican, wrote in her ruling Friday.

The 28-page ruling ordered local election boards to stop counting absentee ballots they’ve already received and to “preserve” them until after Election Day on Nov. 8 or after the resolution of a lawsuit filed by Republicans in the state. The ruling does not invalidate ballots that have already been mailed.

In 2020, delays, litigation and mistakes by election boards that faced a flood of absentee ballots led to long waits for election results. The Democratic-controlled legislature eventually passed a law allowing for early counting of absentee voting.

Democrats in the state are appealing the ruling.  They know that without cheating, they have no chance of winning elections.

In the 2020 Election one of the means that the Democrats stole the election was related to absentee ballots.

We saw mules involved in dropping off ballots in drop boxes in the movie 2000 Mules.

We also saw how absentee ballots were used as the basis to manufacture wins for Biden after the 2020 Election in states like Pennsylvania where GOP poll watchers were prevented from observing inside the ballot counting rooms.

The election was over when Americans couldn’t witness what was going on behind the scenes after Election day – related to counting absentee ballots.
