TAKE ACTION

 

The passage of historic voting reforms on day one of the 2019 session was a strong message from our legislators that this is just the beginning of creating a better democracy for NY. Our other reforms won’t be forgotten — and we know you’ll make sure of that!

Governor Cuomo failed to include Early Voting funding in his Executive Budget, but he still gets to work with the State Legislature on the final budget due April 1 to make sure Early Voting succeeds in New York.

Write a postcard to Governor Cuomo today to make sure he includes a minimum of $25 million in direct funding for Early Voting in the final budget!

@NYGovCuomo

Dear Governor Cuomo,
Thank you for signing Early Voting and other Let NY Vote priorities into law — now I’m counting on you to fund them directly with at least $25 million in the 2019 state budget, since combined primary savings won’t begin until 2020, and start-up costs and 2019 elections costs for the counties start NOW! The State Senate and Assembly included funding for voting reform - it’s time for your to step up and fund your priorities in the final state budget.

Thank you!

CALL THE LEADERS

The State Senate and Assembly are now creating their one-house budgets and then going into budget negotiations for the final budget due April 1. Call your reps now and urge them to include funding for early voting at the top of their priorities throughout negotiations!

I’m a Let NY Vote activist and constituent in your district. Thank you for making the funding of early voting and electronic pollbooks a priority. I am thrilled to see the State Legislature put forward a budget that centers voting rights reform. I hope you’ll continue to be a champion by making sure this stays in the final state budget. These vital appropriations would go a long way in the counties that need it most. Thank you for your continued leadership on this issue.
