2/20: Legislative Affairs Committee Meeting--RSVP below!
Join NYDLC's Legislative Affairs Committee at our next meeting to discuss our Pro-Voter Election Reform Agenda, LetNYVote action items, and our 2019-and-beyond push to overhaul NY and national voting laws. At this meeting, we will focus on:
- -- 2019 Albany advocacy efforts to enact even more voting reform
- -- Improving high-priority pro-voter legislation
- -- Refining NYDLC's comprehensive election reform agenda and updating advocacy materials
- -- Developing voting rights rapid response, OpEds, and other advocacy opportunities
Having finally elected a massive Senate Majority, we are proud that so many prominent N.Y. Democrats in Albany and across the state have called for pro-voter election reforms. We need to let them know they have our support. Our advocacy keeps policymakers focused on their promises to strengthen voting rights by modernizing voter registration and election administration. For years the GOP-controlled State Senate in Albany did everything in their power to block even the most basic democracy reform proposals to improve voter access or modernize registration. As a result, when it comes to safeguarding civil rights like voting, New York lags behind much of the country. But thanks to our tireless advocacy and like-minded partners in government (including those newly elected), that's beginning to change!
NYDLC continues to advocate for convenient pro-voter reforms like providing a reasonable Election Period for balloting (includes an early voting option); revolutionizing the way we register voters by enacting a system of automatic, permanent and portable voter registration for all who are eligible; a same-day registration failsafe; and convenient user-based reforms like online registration, simplified ballot design, and more. You can access NYDLC's current NYS and national Pro-Voter Election Reform Agenda and materials here.
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.
