The new unified majority in New York State has chosen voting reform as one of their top priorities - because of the work you’ve done to bring this issue front and center. We have to make sure that comprehensive, equitable and impactful legislation is passed, not just something that looks good on paper. Contact your reps today to let them know that you want to see comprehensive and progressive voting reform as the top priority in 2019.

CALL OR WRITE YOUR REP
Our reps have made it clear that they only have so much political capital, and they'll only spend it on the things that their constituents bang down their doors about. Even 10 calls or letters can make a huge difference - so start banging!
VISIT YOUR REP
Your reps work for you. Get a couple of friends together and pay your State Senator and Assembly Member a visit. Our lobby guide includes everything you need to know.
STEP 1: MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
Find the contact info for your State Senator & Assembly Member here.
Visit them in their office or in your district. Find out when they're in your district on the legislative calendar.
Once you've made an appointment, add it to our event calendar if you want to get others to join you.
STEP 2: MEET WITH YOUR REP
Our lobby guide includes a pre- and post-meeting checklist plus tips, advice & answers to hard questions.
It also includes our Let NY Vote 1-sheet and Early Voting 1-sheet to leave behind.
Fill out the tracking sheet in our lobby guide while you're there so you can report back.
STEP 3: REPORT BACK
It's important that we communicate with each other to make a greater impact. We hear time and again from legislators that they never hear from constituents about voting reforms. Report back about how your meeting went and where your rep stands so we can have an overview of where our campaign is going.
