Election officials will automatically mail New Yorkers a postage-paid absentee ballot application during the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Friday.“We’re making great progress to flatten the curve and decrease the spread of infection, but we don’t know when this pandemic will end and we can’t put democracy on hold,” he stated.“I am issuing an Executive Order to ensure every New York voter automatically receives a postage-paid application for an absentee ballot because no New Yorker should have to choose between their health and their right to vote,” the governor continued.Recently, Cuomo also issued an executive order allowing residents to vote absentee

Democrat ballots are to be sent to Democrat Party HQ in Albany where they will be double or triple counted as needed. Republican ballots will be sent directly to a shredding facility where they will be immediately discarded. After Emperor Cuomo finishes this election, even Kim Il Jung (if alive) will be jealous of the Dems' vote percentage.

6 months in advance... Should give them plenty of time to make out as many ballots as they need, plus a few box fulls just in case. It the Republicans don't challenge this in court, this will become the standard Democrat strategy everywhere.

We just received mail from the North Dakota Secretary of State that is a letter from the SoS talking about the pandemic and voter safety. On the reverse of the letter is form with our name and address already printed on the appropriate lines and having boxes to check as to which elections we want ballots to be sent to us. An addressed, postage-paid envelope is also contained in the mail. The governor is a Republican, and there is a minority of Democrats in the legislature.

This is Saint Cuomo. You can bet your last dollar that the ballots and mail in envelopes are secretly marked as to whether you're a demonrat or a republican, so the republican ones can be tossed out. By the way, Saint Cuomo is always saying the state is broke. Where's he getting the postal money to mail out all those ballots? Is he counting on a fed bailout to pay for it?

#9, I'm surprised and saddened that North Dakota SoS is promoting this voting procedure. I'm originally from that great state and for all the years I lived there the people were thought to be conservative in their life style and voted that way. This insidious vote by mail mantra is the camels nose in the tent moment and can only lead to massive voter fraud. The fact that the Governor of New York is sending every voter a mail in ballot is the reason President Trump doesn't seriously campaign in that state or California. Why waste valuable time and money.

We all deserve protection from the coronavirus, which is now our nation’s second-leading cause of death. To get it, we must cooperate and make sacrifices. Our culture has a wonderful way of taking controversial or partisan figures and weaving them into the broader story of America. When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, for example, his secretary of war, Edwin Stanton, purportedly said, “Now he belongs to the ages,” which was a way of saying that the battles Lincoln fought and the leadership he provided would stay with us and shape the nation going forward.

President Trump seems increasingly ambivalent about the utility of the daily and sometime marathon press conferences. He should be — and for reasons besides just their length and frequency. First, Trump gets bogged down into long, back-and-forth jousts with the touché Washington press corps. His impromptu skills, honed both as president and in his years on television, usually ensure him tactical victories. He is not peremptory but retaliatory in his put-downs. Fine. Most Americans don’t especially like the Washington press corps. So they don’t mind them earning the repartee that their rude provocation deserves. But Trump’s victories are becoming Pyrrhic.

I have watched nearly every Corona Task Force presser. I took a day off after the Lysol ridiculousness to lower my blood pressure. However, I find the briefings to be very informative. The president gives an overview and then introduces members of the Task Force to update on specific items. The media hates these forums, because they can’t control the information that is available to the public. This is a great reason to keep airing them. The most tedious portion of the pressers are the questions from the members of the White House Press Corps. They are political reporters trying to ingest health, science and business information.

When you think of it, it's nothing short of incredible that Joe Biden is the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party. One might have thought 2016 would have been Biden's year (if he was ever going to have a time at bat), since Barack Obama's two-term presidency had just ended, and most vice presidents who try for the top spot do so immediately following their bosses' departures. But, as is often the case in politics these days, party nominees can result from when the party decides it's someone's "turn." That was the case the last go-around: the Democrats decided that it was Hillary's turn,
