Michael Benjamin, a New York Post columnist, urges that the New York legislature be called into special session in December to work on the problem that the state’s non-presidential September primary must be changed to an earlier date, due to the federal law on overseas absentees ballots.
The hearing in U.S. District Court in the federal government’s lawsuit against New York on this point has been postponed once again, from December 1 to December 12. This is the fourth postponement. It seems somewhat likely that the judge is hoping the legislature will act before he must choose a new primary date. The case is USA v State of New York, northern district, 10-cv-1214.
