Citizens Union sponsored a half day seminar Friday at New York Law School to discuss ways of improving voting in New York. The event was keynoted by Mayor Bill deBlasio who talked about the need for change in Albany. From a report by Samar Khurshid in Gotham Gazette:
“De Blasio is calling for same-day voter registration, early voting, electronic poll-books, and other reforms, including wholesale restructuring of the state law that governs the city Board of Elections. Promising to push state lawmakers in the coming months, de Blasio told the crowd that the status quo is not working. “Now we have to take this battle to Albany, once and for all. And I hope you will join me in that,” he said.”
Papers and other materials from the seminar will be posted on this site when they are available.
