Ari Berman at The Nation reports that only 19.7 percent of eligible New Yorkers voted in the primary April 19, the second-lowest turnout in primary states after Louisiana, according to elections expert Michael McDonald. New York topped all other states in another category, with over 900 calls from voters to the Election Protection Coalition, more than in any other primary so far this year. There were also reports of many voters, mostly Democrats, and concentrated in Brooklyn, being stripped of registration, which are being investigated. Read the full story in The Nation.
