Statement from NYGOP Chair Ed Cox

ALBANY – NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement:

“The decision by Supreme Court (Albany County) dismissing our request for an injunction to halt the implementation of the mail-in early voting statute was plainly wrong. The Court did not consider the merits of the case and had to be forced to issue an opinion after we asked the Appellate Division to force Justice Ryba to issue an opinion.  Our request for an injunction to halt implementation of the law was argued on October 13 and she only issued her opinion at 11PM on December 26. Judges who decide cases based on politics and not the law are a disgrace to our State.

“We are in the process of appealing the decision to the Appellate Division in Albany.

“The state Constitution requires that absentee ballots can only be cast by those who are away from their county of residence on Election Day or by those who are sick or disabled.  This new law is directly contrary to the state Constitution and should be overturned.  We are confident that when impartial judges hear our appeal they will agree with our position.”
