JLL too lazy to write this morning's post.

Voting where you live at least 30 days a
year is not only ethical, moral and legal,
but it can be very romantic.

I have run out of steam and ambition. So this morning I am going to let a couple of anonymous commenters write a post for me. It is their answer to Voters for Wind's claim that registering at the residence you love best is unethical, immoral and borders on illegal.

My astute anonymous commenters examine the foolish complaint of the Voters for Wind in depth and point out to us that Governor Cuomo not only votes at part-time residence but that residence is owned by the lady he loves.


  1. Vote with the one you love at the residence you love the most.

    We've pointed this out time and again. Everybody gets it but those who don't want to get it. Their plot is to continue to deny what's legal and what's law.

    What's important for everyone to remember is NOT that we need to convince the Wileys, Kings and Masons, but that we have to keep them out of office.

    Anyone who perpetrates a lie, especially one related to voting rights, doesn't deserve to govern. The all deserve front row seats in the whiners gallery.

    Good Morning JLL,

    The prejudice of the Cape Vincent pro wind is running so deep it is now almost offensive to be called a seasonal.

    Except that as you have pointed out many times the summer population of the Lake and River communities is twice the winter population. That says something about the political potential of the decision making in those communities.

    We are a tourism region and summer place so it is important that we elect people who understand that or have experience with that in business or even by moving here and making it their choice.

    The letters to the paper and to the public hearing board was a warning sign of a deep rooted social disease that is being spread around Lyme and Cape Vincent by the supporters of a foreign corporation.

    My hubby and I settled here as a result of observing military experiences and travels around the world.
    What we have here is so precious and we personally feel that a wind farm is destructive to Lyme and Cape Vincent. A wind farm and power lines are not why we chose Jefferson County from all the other choices we have seen and experienced.

    We were brought up to understand prejudice and prejudice is a part of why we need a strong defense to prevent the erosion of democracy.

    Labeling a group of people and and then telling them that they do not have a right to vote and participate in the decision making that affects their democratic rights is the worst form of prejudice and the people who spread that form of anti-democracy should be called to task.

  4. Thank you 6:06 and 6:06.

    There is nothing grey about the voting law. You Must:

    1. Be a United States citizen;

    2. Be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which you file your registration form (note: you must be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote);

    3. Live at your present address at least 30 days before an election;

    4. Not be in jail or on parole for a felony conviction and;

    5. Not claim the right to vote elsewhere

    If you register to vote in Cape Vincent, NY your assessor may get a letter from Cape Vincent Democratic Chairman Harold Wiley or Gary King of the Cape Vincent Concerned Citizens for Fair Government.

    The purpose of the voter for wind, wiley/king letter is to intimidate you and your assessor into thinking that you will lose your STAR exemption. Some assessors may be political pricks and not understand that where you vote has nothing to do with your right to a STAR exemption. So, they may actually threaten to take your STAR away. They are not allowed to do that and you should defend your right to vote.

    Also, Wiley and King are trying to make people think that there is voter fraud in Cape Vincent because already, hundreds of people have recently chosen to register to vote in Cape Vincent. According to the Jefferson County Board of Legislators, there has never been one single case of documented voter fraud in the Town of Cape Vincent Elections.

    Harassing, disenfranchisement, and intimidating voters is a violation of the 1963 Federal Voting Act.

    " is NOT that we need to convince the Wileys, Kings and Masons, but that we have to keep them out of office."


    You can keep them out of office by registering to vote in Cape Vincent if you live there 30 days.


    On the thirtieth day register to vote in Clayton, Lyme, Cape Vincent, A-Bay, Hammond, etc.

    And, Vote for Matt Doheny, too.
