Counties Falling Short In Early Voting Push, Common Cause Says

In State of Politics, from Nick Reisman “Several county governments have so far failed to meet early voting requirements such as submitting poll site locations in November to the state Board of Elections, Common Cause on Wednesday said.

The good-government group found Ulster, Westchester, Cattaraugus and Columbia counties so far have not released any polling locations. They have until next Wednesday to do so.”

State Dems Move Up Party Switch Deadline

From Nick Reisman in State of Politics “New York Democrats on Wednesday moved up the deadline for voters to switch parties or register as Democrats ahead of next year’s presidential primary.

The state committee voted to move the party switch deadline to 60 days before a primary, rather than more than 190 days. At the same time, the party will also now allow voters unaffiliated with a party — registered blanks or small “i” independents — to register as Democrats 25 days before a primary.

New York’s presidential primary is scheduled for April 28.”
