New Yorkers Who Don’t Vote Would Pay $10 Fine Under Assemblywoman’s Bill

Manhattan Assembly Member Deborah Glick has introduced legislation that would penalize New Yorkers who fail to vote with a $10 fine. As reported by Glenn Blain in the NY Daily News, “under Glick’s bill, any eligible voter who fails to vote would be hit with the $10 fine unless they have a “valid excuse” why they couldn’t do so. The legislation does not specify what constitutes a valid excuse.”
