Matt Damon Makes You Tube, Explaining New York Ballot Problem for Voters who Want to Support Working Families Party

Published on November 1, 2010, by in General.

Movie star Matt Damon has made this you tube, intended for voters who want to support the New York Working Families Party on November 2.  As has been previously noted, this year New York isn’t using mechanical voting machines; voters are voting on paper ballots.  Therefore, the Working Families Party, the Independence Party, and the Conservative Party, are all alarmed that many voters are likely to vote twice for one office, for the same candidate.  When that happens, the vote-counting machines will count those votes as valid for the party that appears first.  So anyone who votes for Andrew Cuomo, for example, as both a Democrat, and a Working Families Party nominee, will have that voted count only for the Democratic Party.

Thanks to Kimberly Wilder for the link.

  1. Well, I want everyone’s vote to count the way they wanted it to.

    But, I think Matt Damon is wrong when he says that voting for Democrats on “Line E” is some kind of progressive vote.

    Oh, well.

    Be careful how you vote. Think third party.

    If you want to vote for a party who is against war, and for nonviolence, vote Green Party!

    ;)

    I hope the New York State registration form looks a little different next year.

    The STONE AGE pre-history BARBARIAN NY regime is NOT able to put in each office box —

    Vote ONLY in ONE box for ONE candidate — when ONE person is to be elected to a single office ???

    Where is the 2000 Bush v. Gore HAMMER waiting to be used again — this time on the zombie brains of the EVIL morons in the NY party hack regime — legislative, executive and judicial ???
