Residents get 6 votes each in suburban NY election. What???

[Residents of Port Chester NY can] cast multiple votes on the instructions of a federal judge and the U.S. Department of Justice as part of a new election system crafted to help boost Hispanic representation.

This seems unconstitutional IMO. One man, one vote! Thoughts?

    It doesn't "seem," it IS unconstitutional!!  But what would you expect considering we have an adminstration that uses The Constitution for toilet paper!!!


    Without reading the article, let me guess....DEMOCRATS are behind this "bright" idea?!  LOL :o)

  • After reading the article, it makes no sense whatsoever. Voter turnout in the past was only 25%. If you allow both whites and Hispanics 6 votes apiece, how does that help Hispanics? Increasing voter turnout might help, but if people don't care enough to vote, giving the voters extra power is patently unfair.

    Lori, the judge was appointed by GWB. Other than that, I can't find anything about him. This strikes me as really, really wrong.
