Jacobson + Voting Activists to Rally for Early Voting Funding
NEW YORK, NY (03/14/2019) (readMedia)-- This Friday, Assemblymember Jonathan Jacobson (D-Newburgh) will be joined by Senator James Skoufis, Hudson Valley Boards of Elections Commissioners, other elected officials, and Let NY Vote activists in a rally in support of funding for early voting in the state budget.
In January, the Legislature passed Early Voting, which was signed into law. This legislation provides voters nine additional days to vote before an election. However, the Governor's proposed budget did not include funding for electronic pollbooks and the on-demand ballot printers, which are crucial to the program's success.
