Legislature To Take Up Voting Reforms On Monday

From New York State of Politics’ Nick Reisman, “State lawmakers are expected to take up on Monday a package of bills and a pair of constitutional amendments designed to make it easier to cast a vote in New York.

The bills will include measures for early voting, combining the state and federal primaries, a bill that would make voting easier for people who have moved and pre-registration for 16 and 17-year-old prospective voters, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said in an interview on WCNY’s The Capitol Pressroom.

An additional bill would close the loophole in state election law that allows donors to give an unlimited amount of money through a web of limited liability companies.

The Legislature is also expected to pass constitutional amendments for same-day registration and no-excuse absentee voting.”
