BP's Tatics in Cape Vincent Ny

Cape Vincent ~ Candidates Aubertine, Pearson and Wood, request court intervention to deny seasonal residents their fundamental right to vote.

 The Democratic candidates running for Town of Cape Vincent Town council, Dennis W. Pearson, Paul F. Aubertine and Alan Wood, who are running for supervisor, filed a legal challenge to disqualify the absentee ballots that were cast by seasonal residents in the Cape Vincent NY, Town Council, and Supervisor race.

 Hey folks, this lawsuit is about one thing, and one thing only.     Read page 10, paragraph 10, of their petition it lays it all out.

What they are contending is that in order to be eligible to vote in Cape Vincent , your primary residence must be Cape Vincent .
Thisis directed at seasonal residents and is nothing more than a throwback to the illegal voter ID law requiring a Cape Vincent address on your driver’s license in order to vote (or if Harold Wileyknows who you are).

  New York State law is clear - citizens with second homes have the right to choose where they want to vote. Residents do not have to vote where they maintain their primary residence. In fact primary residency is not even mentioned in New York State election law.

 In 2007 the State Supreme Court ordered the Delaware County Board of Elections to reinstate eight weekend homeowners who had been stricken from the voting rolls. In his decision Judge Kevin M. Dowd said “The bottom line is… election officials are to establish that the prospective voters address is a real one and not a sham, and then to look at the expressed wishes of the voter.”[1]
(Wilkie et al v. the Delaware County Board of Elections, No. 504004 NYS Sup. Crt App. 3d, Oct. 23, 2008)

 The petition by Aubertine, Pearson and Wood, requests that the court intervene and deny a certain segment of Cape Vincent’s population their fundamental right to vote.
This harkens back to an earlier case in New York State; one of the last reported convictions for false registration and illegal voting in 1876 it involved a woman by the name of Susan B. Anthony, a pioneer of the woman’s Suffrage movement.[2]

150 Years ago Abe Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address and I doubt that Paul Aubertine, Al Wood and Dennis Pearson have ever read it.

Hey folks?

Are the rumors true that because of what Aubertine, Wood and Pearson are doing to the seasonals that the person who was posting in the WDT as Start a Business in Cape Vincent has changed her name to Boycott a Business in Cape Vincent?

I am a seasonal resident in CV. Me and my seasonal friends were being told by the 2013 Democratic runners that Hirscheyville was doing bad things to us seasonals and the democrats love us and wind was done and not a issue. Now I find out that the Democrats were lying to us. Now i learned that Paul, and Al and Dennis want to take away me and my hubby's vote.
