Why Voting Rights?
Watch DNC Vice-Chair Michael Blake discuss NYDLC's voter protection work: "We should be doing everything we can to make sure that voting rights are universal; that it's easier for someone to vote, not harder." Blake encourages NYDLCers "to stay on the offensive--we have to make sure that we are pushing back to expand voting rights for everyone."
Watch The Modern Fight to Vote in New York and Beyond highlighting the critical role NYDLC plays protecting fundamental voting rights and the pro-voter path forward on reforming and modernizing NY election laws.
