“Dangerously fragile”… the right to vote.

Submitted by Stephen Ring from Southampton NY:

Early voting begins on June 18 – 26 (2022):

Starting last Thursday night (6/9/22), The United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, began a series of eight public hearings, on the events leading up to and culminating with the attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, with the attempt to overturn the election of 2021. The very first thing that became apparent was how fragile our democracy is. The cornerstone of our democracy is the right to vote. Every citizen is entitled to vote and have their vote counted.

In New York State, early voting begins on June 18 – 26, and on June 28, the Primary Election for New York State Governor and Lt. Governor. The Democratic candidates for Governor are:

1.     Congressman Tom Suozzi   Tom was the four-term Mayor of Glen Cove, the youngest elected Nassau County Executive, and the first Democrat in thirty years to be elected to that position. Tom was elected three times to The United States Congress from CD 3. Tom’s running mate is Diana Reyna for Lt. Governor. Diana served as Deputy Borough President of Brooklyn and was a twelve-year member of the New York City Council.

President Jimmy Carter – “I now fear that what we have fought so hard to achieve Globally – the right to free, fair elections, unhindered by Strongman Politicians who seek nothing more than to grow their own power – has become dangerously fragile at home.”
