    It’s called the Board of Elections, but for some reason, its officials have a hard time figuring out when elections are held. Already under fire over the mysterious purge of more than 120,000 Brooklyn voters in last month’s presidential primaries, the city’s election board has messed up yet again. Board workers sent out notices informing...

    Gov. Cuomo on Wednesday unloaded on Mayor de Blasio for falsely accusing the state Board of Elections chief investigator and other state officials of leaking a report on the mayor’s fund-raising — and demanded that Hizzoner apologize. “When you attack people and you’re questioning reputations, then facts matter. The mayor accused career public servants basically...

    City Republicans have won state Board of Elections approval for a new “Stop de Blasio’’ line on the November ballot that will allow voters unhappy with Mayor Bill de Blasio — and perhaps Donald Trump as well — to back their two Assembly candidates without having to vote the GOP party line. New York County...

    There is apparently nothing wrong with America that can’t be blamed on Donald Trump. He is single-handedly destroying the Republican Party, trashing presidential debates and spoiling the reputation of locker-room talk. And — breaking news alert! — Trump is even changing journalism. His habit of saying things that nobody ever said before is forcing reporters...

    He’s playing for the other team, but a Manhattan lawyer has asked a judge to subpoena Trump kids Ivanka and Eric to lend credence to his class action lawsuit against the city and the Board of Elections Lawyer Mark Moody missed the deadline to switch from Independent to Democrat so he could vote for Bernie...

    Now Mayor de Blasio’s joined the chorus calling for the head of Board of Elections Commissioner Alan Schulkin — simply for privately (he thought) speaking his mind about voter fraud. After a few drinks — and to an undercover reporter for James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. Yes, Schulkin’s remarks are embarrassing to his fellow Democrats, who...

    Michelle Obama’s emotional speech denouncing Donald Trump for alleged sexual misconduct last week got rave reviews from the left. She called Trump’s words and reported actions “shocking” and “demeaning,” and below “basic standards of human decency.” Well said, and she gave a moving performance — but it would have been more powerful if the first...

    State Republicans say they’ve caught New York’s largest teachers union in a bunch of election-law violations aimed at boosting Democrats, and they’re demanding an investigation. The charge is certainly credible: When it comes to state Democrats and unions like New York State United Teachers, it’s hard to tell who’s the senior partner. State GOP Chairman...
