10/10: NYDLC Legislative Affairs Committee Meeting

 10/10: Legislative Affairs Committee Meeting--RSVP below!

Join NYDLC's Legislative Affairs Committee to discuss our Pro-Voter Election Reform Agenda and prepare for our 2018 Advocacy. At this meeting, we will focus on:

  • -- Planning for 2018 pro-voter advocacy (Caucus Weekend, Budget, and Albany Voter Days)
  • -- Honing our 2018 NYS election reform agenda
  • -- Finalizing our National Voting Rights Agenda
  • -- Coordinating rapid response and other messaging opportunities

         We are proud that many prominent N.Y. Democrats have called for pro-voter election reforms in 2017. We need to have their back and keep them focused on strengthening voting rights by modernizing voter registration and election administration processes. Meanwhile, the NYGOP has done everything they can to ignore NY voting problems and block reforms. We need to expose this for what it is--passive voter suppression intended to suppress YOUR voice. 

         NYDLC continues to advocate for convenient pro-voter reforms like bringing Early Vote to New York (a goal NYDLC has pursued for several years), revolutionizing the way we register voters by enacting a system of automatic voter registration, same-day registration, registration portability, online registration, pre-registration for the next generation of voters, simplified ballot design, and more. 

         NYDLC will also be rolling out a National Voting Rights Agenda, which identifies several top priorities that, if adopted nationwide, would enhance our democracy by making our electoral process fairer, more inclusive, and more accessible to the ~50 million eligible voters who are not currently registered to vote.

         But these are big priorities, and we can't achieve them without your relentless dedication, active participation, and continued support. RSVP below to join our next meeting. 

Dial in option: If you can't attend in person, all members are welcome to join the meeting by phone. Please RSVP below and you will receive credentials for the call by email.
