Expand the court.
Republicans do this because they don鈥檛 believe Dems have the stones to play hardball like they do. And for a long time they鈥檝e been correct. But do not let them bully the public into thinking their bulldozing is normal but a response isn鈥檛. There is a legal process for expansion.
It鈥檚 not just a matter of long lines either - in this year鈥檚 primary, thousands of voters received their mail-in ballots *after* the election.
In 2017, the NYC Board of Elections admitted in court it broke state & fed law by purging hundreds of thousands of voters off the rolls.
This is some cold truth from @AOC. If NYC were in a swing state, its election administration would be a national outrage. pic.twitter.com/Hu7nNIR4G4
Voter suppression isn鈥檛 always abt intent. Whether borne out of conspiracy or incompetence, it almost always yields disparate impact on the working class, communities of color, the under-resourced, etc.

And shouldn鈥檛 an 鈥渋ncompetent鈥 BOE be recognized as a huge, urgent problem?
.@NYCMayor does not agree with @AOC that long lines are a form of voter suppression:

"I don鈥檛 think there鈥檚 conspiracy at the @BOENYC, I think there鈥檚 incompetence at the BOE," the mayor says.
