The modern struggle for voting rights will only intensify in 2017. RSVP below!
Join NYDLC on Weds., Jan. 11th for the first meeting of our Minority Voting Rights Committee of 2017.
Voting is a fundamental right. But throughout U.S. history and even today, state legislatures and other institutions have raised barriers that make it difficult for certain communities to exercise these core civil rights. Regardless of the motive offered for the restriction, the result is the same--rights of eligible voters are infringed and the political will of the electorate is suppressed. Modernizing voter access and improving civic engagement will strengthen our democracy, making it more representative and responsive to the needs of our communities.
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, simplified ballot design, registration portability, online registration, pre-registration for the next generation of voters, and more. 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, you may join the meeting by phone. Please RSVP below and you will receive credentials for the call.
