New York City Republicans have gotten Board of Elections approval for a "Stop de Blasio" line on the November ballot that'll let voters unhappy with Mayor Bill de Blasio a chance to weigh in.

The New York Post reports the line was designed for two GOP state Assembly candidates on the November ticket – and will allow Democrats and independents a chance to vote their disapproval of the liberal mayor without feeling uncomfortable about voting Republican.

New York County GOP chairwoman Adele Malpass tells the Post getting the required 1,300 signatures needed to get the line on the ballot was easy.

"We'd go out on the street for signatures saying that we're creating a line to stop Bill de Blasio and lots of people would say, 'I'm a lifelong Democrat but he's got to go,'" she said.

"We had people saying, 'We'll sign anything to get rid of de Blasio.'"

One GOP activist was impressed and noted how the move could affect Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

"There are a lot of Republicans, not to mention Democrats and independents, who won’t vote for someone on the same line as Trump, so this is a smart move to give them an alternative," the unnamed activist tells the Post.
