early voting

Ethics reforms and changes designed to make it easier to vote in New York were left out of the new state budget but could resurface when lawmakers return from spring break.

At a hearing held by the State Assembly on expanded voting, advocates argued that New York needs to join more than half of the other state who offer some kind of extended voting.


New York is behind other states when it comes to the issue of election reforms.  A forum will be held in Albany Monday that will explore changes to make voting easier.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver wants New York to join the ranks of states with early voting.
