NYS Board of Elections Website Blocking Access To Natural Born Citizen Requirements

NYS Board of Elections Website Blocking Access To Natural Born Citizen Requirements

Previous versions of the New York State Board of Elections website that listed the qualifications for the Presidential Candidates to be a Natural Born Citizen have not only been scrubbed, but their website has html source code embedded to prevent archiving and specifically coded to be excluded in archival sites such as the Way Back Machine.

(Robot Text – embedded in NY BOE website to thwart access to Natural Born Citizen reference)

The Board of Elections website cites Article II Section 1 as the Constitutional authority for Presidential requirements; however the reference to Natural Born Citizen has been replaced with just “Born a citizen” and they do not list Clause 5 which was specifically included by the Framers as a strong check against dual allegiance and foreign influence for the Office of the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief:


“No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

The New York State Board of Elections regularly updates their website. And you can use an internet archive program called the Way Back Machine to see some of the previous versions of the Board of Elections website as it existed during various times in the past. However, not all of the previous webpages are available; and it is not due to broken links.

The Board of Elections is employing technology within the computer programming language that makes up the website to actively block someone from gaining access to the webpage that previously listed the Natural Born Citizen requirement for the Presidency.
