NYDLC Proposes Overhaul to Leading NYS Early Voting Proposal

In a newly released report "Bringing Early Vote to the State of New York" NYDLC's Legislative Affairs Committee endorses a sweeping overhaul to the leading NYS Early Vote legislative proposal that incorporates best practices from systems in place across the country and suggestions from good government advocates. 

The proposal better reflect the differing needs of New York's extremely diverse 62 counties, embracing the mantra that "one size does not fit all counties" and preserving local flexibility.

In the coming months, NYDLC will work with Albany lawmakers to revise the existing legislation (A689A (Silver) / S1461A (Stewart-Cousins)).
