Governor Cuomo Proposes Election Law Reforms in State of the State “Opportunity” Speech

Last week, Governor Andrew Cuomo proposed a series of election law changes as part of his 2015 Opportunity Agenda . These proposals include: public financing of campaigns, restricting use of campaign contributions, lowering limits on campaign contributions and closing loopholes, improving New York’s voting system, changing the ballot design to make it simpler, expanding the voter registration period to increase electoral participation, modernizing affidavit ballot processes to be more convenient to voters and allowing candidates and voters to change parties easier.

These proposals can be found on pages 267 to 276 in The Governor’s Opportunity Agenda book.
