Times Union: Election Holiday A Bad Idea

Today’s Albany Times Union editorializes that “a new plan would turn the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November each year into a school holiday. But suspending education on Election Day, a measure that is being pushed by a couple of state lawmakers, is hardly a remedy for the problem of low turnout.”

Instead, the paper  argues that “New York needs to adopt some of these proven measures that have increased turnout in other states. Some, like same-day registration, will require a state constitutional amendment, but that shouldn’t stop the push for meaningful reforms.”

Please read the editorial for other ideas promoted by the paper.
