BP ADAMS STATEMENT ON ABSENTEE BALLOT MAILING ERRORS IN BROOKLYN

“I have received numerous reports from confused and exasperated Brooklynites who received absentee ballots with erroneous names and addresses on the return envelopes. I have long believed that if you don’t inspect what you expect, it’s all suspect. The BOE has once again fallen short on this basic task, and for that there must be accountability. Trust in our democratic process must be absolute, and errors like these are particularly unacceptable for disenfranchised communities who have suffered disproportionately from COVID-19 and depend on fair elections to address decades of systemic inequality and injustice. We can and must swiftly right this wrong and encourage in-person voting for all those who are able, strictly adhering to public health guidelines by handing out masks and hand sanitizer, creating outdoor voting booths, and anything else necessary. This upcoming election will be one of the most important in modern history. We will not let deliberate sabotage, political cynicism, or bureaucratic screw-ups cast the results into doubt.”
