Republican New York Rep. Elise Stefanik warns against further election irregularities caused by Democrat policies.
In an op-ed released on Breitbart News on Saturday, Stefanik warned voters in the Empire State against several provisions on their ballots this November. She claimed the measures aim to expand mail-in voting, give Democrat officials more power over a so-called “independent redistricting commission,” and register voters without time to vet their eligibility.
Stefanik pointed to the 2020 election in New York’s 22nd District, where fellow GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney (N.Y.) was delayed her victory for nearly four months over ballot counting errors. She added ballots were lost in drawers, absentee ballots were inaccurately counted and there was a breakdown in basic election integrity measures.
“This disenfranchised hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers who went without federal representation for far too long,” Stefanik wrote.
In the meantime, the number three House Republican is urging voters to watch out for laws Democrats say are election reform measures.
