We did it! We finally passed early voting in New York State. Congratulations to us all! On Monday the legislature passed a package of reforms that included Early voting, Same day voter registration, No-excuse absentee voting, Primary Consolidation, Pre-registration for 16 and 17 year olds, State-wide voter registration transfer, and Closure of the LLC loophole
The League of Women Voters of NYS joined The New York Civil Liberties Union, American Civil Liberties Union, and the law firm Latham & Watkins LLP to file a lawsuit today challenging New York’s 25-day voter registration cutoff for arbitrarily disenfranchising tens of thousands of eligible voters.
