Signing Voting Reform Bills, Cuomo Says There’s More To Do

From Nick Reisman in State of Politics, “Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law Thursday a package of bills designed to make it easier to vote and to register to vote in New York.

The bills include a consolidation of the state and federal party primaries to June, a bill that creates early voting in New York and a measure that would pre-register 16 and 17-year-olds.

Cuomo also wants to make Election Day a state holiday and extend the hours of voting for upstate counties on primary day to begin at 6 a.m.”
