Common Cause/NY to NYS Assembly: "Pass NYC Online Voter Registration"

NEW YORK, NY (07/23/2020) (readMedia)-- As New York State Assembly Members head into session, bill A8473, which would allow for eligible New York City residents to register to vote online, appears to be stalled in Committee. The bill passed in the State Senate yesterday.

In response, Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause/NY issued the following statement:

"We've seen record participation thanks to expanded absentee voting, and this is a prime opportunity to allow New Yorkers to register online. NYC already has the technology all set up, we just need the Legislature to approve its use. Registering to vote should be simple and easy."
