It’s the case of the disappearing voter in New York.

Nearly 54,000 voters in Brooklyn vanished before Tuesday’s primary elections, the New York Post reported.

As of April the borough listed 853,687 Democrats as active because they have voted a minimum of one time in the past four years, however in November that number was 917,508, a difference of 63,558.

The board claimed the disparity was because many active voters were moved to the inactive list because they hadn’t voted in four years, but the inactive list only grew by 9,154 which left 54,404 off the rolls, according to the Post.

The inactive voters are allowed to vote, but the missing voters cannot.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Hillary Clinton supporter, said he was “confused” by the mishap.

“I’ve asked already today for an analysis of this from the Board of Elections,” he said.

And what a coincidence it is.

Brooklyn is where Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders grew up and where, according to CNN, he drew a crowd of more than 28,000 on Monday to one of the biggest campaign rallies this season.
