    Residents get 6 votes each in suburban NY election - Yahoo! News

    This is retarded. First off if they give EVERYONE 6 votes a piece does that not defeat the very concept of somehow the Hispanics can not elect someone?

    Secondly if the Hispanics have such a large number of eligible voters unless it can be shown in court the city is doing something to suppress those votes how is it even the business of the Federal Government?

    Looney toons indeed.

    You get to vote 25 times for the Baseball All-Star Game...plus you can use multiple email accounts and get 25 votes with each.

    And certainly the Baseball All-Star Game is far more important than the Port Chester Village Board of Trustees.

    One man, one vote. Unless you're Hispanic. What are these people in New York smoking?

    I would guess voter turnout declines. You have to do six times the work.

    So the first person to get 36 votes wins? Just bus ACORN registered Latinos in from the Bronx on election day .

    Six votes?

    1. Me
    2. Myself
    3. I
    4. My feminine side.
    5. My masculine side.
    6. Second guessing yourself?
