  • Our voting laws are among the most antiquated in the nation, with restrictions that are uniquely burdensome to voters.
  • New York law requires voters to change their party registration more than a year before Election Day if they want to participate in a party primary.
  • Additionally a barrier to voting by mail is that you need to provide an excuse for why you need an absentee ballot mailed to you instead of just automatically getting it in the mail and being able to send the ballot back.
