Chatham Becomes 3rd Municipality to Denounce Republican Voter Challenge

The Town of Chatham has become the third Columbia County municipality to pass a resolution supporting the rights of second homeowners to vote in Columbia County. 

The resolution passed unanimously after about 15 minutes of discussion.

The Republican Party brought a legal challenge against Columbia County voters who voted by Absentee Ballot in the November 2009 General Election.  That suit represents a coordinated campaign to prevent an entire class of voters from exercising their right to vote. 

Evidence that this is a coordinated conspiracy is contained in the June 8, 2009 meeting minutes of the Columbia County Sportsmen’s Federation in which the Chairman of the Columbia County Republican Committee is reported to have said:  “24/7 residents need to get more involved in the political process, stop the “weekenders” from taking over.”
