They said it couldn't be done . . . but together, we made history!!!!!!
Thanks to the hard work of our grassroots activists across New York state who have fought for years to bring about long overdue voting reform, we passed the first major voting reforms in New York in over 100 years! By passing this initial package of voting reforms on day one of the legislative session, our representatives have sent us a clear message that our voices have been heard, and that this is just the beginning!
✔️ Early voting
✔️ Consolidation of federal & state primaries
✔️ Portability of voter registration
✔️ Pre-registration of 16 & 17 year-olds
✔️ No-excuse absentee voting (Step 1 of 3 for a constitutional amendment)
✔️ Same day registration (Step 1 of 3 for a constitutional amendment)
Do you want fair voting in New York?
This was an amazing and historic first step toward profound, structural voting reform in New York, and there is much still to do. Please call these four leaders — or better yet send them a hand-written note — to thank them and let them know that you look forward to working with them to bring about more voting reform victories this year.
NEW YORKERS WANT
FREE, FAIR AND SECURE voting.
But unlike many other states, New York's antiquated laws discourage voting and deny citizens the freedom to vote. Together, we can change that. Let NY Vote has common-sense steps needed to protect and expand the freedom to vote for every eligible New Yorker.
