Oct 14th was NOT deadline to change party affiliation in NYS?!Submitted by Unblinded on Mon, 10/24/2011 - 18:17
I sent my information to the Board of Elections about 2 weeks before the October 14th "deadline" in order to be eligible to vote for Ron Paul in the Republican primary. I am sorry to report that my new Board of Elections card came today, AND I AM STILL REGISTERED INDEPENDENT !!! On the front of my mailing it says in bold print:
UNDER THE PROVISION OF THE NYS ELECTION LAW, YOUR NEW PARTY ENROLLMENT WILL BE EFFECTIVE AFTER THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION.
What gives? I saw many posts here and on other websites stating October 14th was the deadline to switch in order to vote in the primaries. This is very discouraging because I got at least 12 other people to do the same thing in order to vote for Ron Paul. Now this?! I am soooo pissed right now!!! Maybe I am missing something - I'm hoping somebody here can enlighten me.
