AG James, Voting Rights Groups Kickoff Early Voting in the Bronx

NEW YORK, NY (10/23/2020) (readMedia)-- On the first day of early voting in New York, Attorney General Letitia James, Common Cause/NY, College ?& Community Fellowship? will rally together to get out the early vote, empower historically disenfranchised communities and inform voters about the statewide election protection program already underway. Over 400 volunteers will serve as either virtual poll monitors or roving poll monitors to assist voters with urgent questions, protect voting rights, and make sure poll sites are taking adequate safety protections.

The election protection program is a redux of 2016. This year, because of COVID-19, additional volunteers will be digital, on bikes, or in cars. Digital poll monitors will be searching social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to assist voters in real time. Roving poll monitors will be assigned several poll locations to check-on during their shifts.

Early voting starts today, and runs until November 1st. Election Day is November 3rd. Voters can request their absentee ballot until October 27 and postmark it by November 3rd. To find more information on where and when to vote check out:
