Ron Paul was missing from the ballot at my designated polling place for the 2008PRIMARY RACE at 6 Lee Avenue Stony Point, NY 10980 in Rockland County NY. Upon mentioning this to the poll workers they proceeded to tell me several times that "He dropped out". This is my personal account.
The Ron Paul NYC Headquarters was notified and its now in their hands but its your turn to voice your concern and your discontent with the Rockland County Board of Elections who were responsible for this - whether it was a mistake or intentional its unacceptable.
Rockland County Board of Elections
** PLEASE NOTE: If you call please mention this specific voting location (6 Lee Ave Stony Point, NY). Do not fail to mention your concern over poll workers giving out false information (ie. "Ron Paul dropped out") and, of course, the fact that Ron Paul was not on the voting ballot at this location. Thanks!
In the DAILY NEWS:
A similar incident that occurred in Brooklyn, NY. Here's the story in the Daily News.
Another account of this happening in NY:
Don't sit back and tell yourself this was an isolated incident. The headquarters reported that their phone was off the hook with reports that poll workers were falsely notifying people that Ron Paul had dropped out.
If you ask me it is obstructing democracy. treasonous even.

*UPDATE: I have spoken to a gentleman named Frank at the Ron Paul NYC headquarters today and they have had continued reports of poll workers who told voters Ron Paul dropped out and, most offensively, incidents like mine where he was missing from the ballot all together. They are gathering credible evidence and eyewitness accounts from voters, poll watchers, and police. This is being taken very seriously.
BUT while this action is being taken do not sit back and leave it to the lawyers, be PROACTIVE. Stay informed, let your voice be heard, and do not let this happen to ANY candidate in your precinct.
This is unacceptable for a country that has proclaimed itself the "defender of democracy".
