January’s focus – Expand Voting Rights!
The New York State Senate and Assembly leadership is making good on addressing voting rights legislation as a priority! They are expected to pass legislation that will allow early voting, pre-registration for 16- and 17-year olds, and consolidation of state and federal primaries. This is a great start to addressing all of the voting reforms needed in our state.
