EXCERPTS:’s calls and e-mails to Board of Elections officials and staff were not returned for the second day in a row.  The board’s offices are closed for Columbus Day.

According to the 2009 MOVE Act, a state must send out its military and overseas ballots 45 days prior to elections.

New York was granted a waiver to this deadline by the Department of Justice and given an additional 15 days — until October 1 — to send out all its ballots. On October 5, New York State Board of Elections co-directors informed federal officials that the state had not fully met its extended deadline, according to an e-mail posted online at, the website of the Defense Department agency tasked with overseeing military voting.

“This is the latest in a cascade of ineptitude by the Department of Justice. Military voters and their families should be enraged,” said Adams, who now is a conservative blogger.

“A credible enforcement operation would have detected problems on October 2.  DOJ didn’t detect it, and almost two weeks later, the situation has become critical in New York and other states.  The only place they have sued to enforce the law?  Guam. ”
