I’m sure it was really parents who “indicated that they wanted more time to cast their advisory vote” – not the DOE, attempting to artificially boost the turnout.

Subject: CEC Advisory Vote Extended to April 29th
Dear CEC Candidate:
As you probably know, phone calls have been going out from former New York City Mayor, Ed Koch, to remind parents to vote for the Community and Citywide Education Councils.
Due to spring break falling during the voting period, a number of parents indicated that they would like more time to be able to cast their advisory vote. We have listened to this feedback, and extended the online voting until April 29th.
If you need additional materials to get-out-the-vote, please feel free to reply to this email or call 1 877 NYC VOTE. Materials are available in 9 languages: English, Spanish, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Haitian Creole and Urdu. Copies of sample flyers in English and Spanish are attached for your convenience.
