State Legislators To Push For Voter Registration & Election Reforms

Assembly Member Sepúlveda and Senators Diaz and Espaillat  will announce they will introduce legislation to make it a felony for boards of elections to dump or archive voters from registration rolls, requiring that such removals only be made upon confirmation either of the death of a voter or the out-of-state relocation of a voter, and to require boards of elections to notify voters by email, whenever possible, of changes in polling sites. Sepúlveda, Diaz, and Espaillat will also announce their support of legislation to provide for automatic registration of voters when they apply for or renew their driver’s license or non-driver ID (with the option for persons to opt out of becoming registered) and to allow voters to change party registration as easily and under the identical criteria applicable for new voter registration.

 The legislators will announce their plans today at a 1:00 PM Press Conference at NYC Hall.
