Democracy Advocates + State Legislators Launch Campaign to Vote Yes on Props 1, 3, 4!
November ballot proposals on redistricting, voter registration, and absentee voting
NEW YORK, NY (10/13/2021) (readMedia)-- Common Cause/NY, Make the Road New York, the NY Civic Engagement Table, and partners will gather outside Federal Hall to launch a campaign: Vote Yes on 1, 3, and 4!
The campaign will include direct outreach to New Yorkers urging them to vote yes on November ballot proposals to strengthen democracy. Proposal 1 would create districts that put New Yorkers before politicians by enshrining the ban on prison based gerrymandering into the state constitution, making sure that non-citizens are included in the Census for the sake of redistricting, and making several additional fixes to make the system and timeline more workable. Proposals 3 and 4 would make voting more accessible for all New Yorkers by eliminating voter registration deadlines and allowing voters to request an absentee ballot, no excuse needed.
