What's Inside (And Left Out) Of NY's Historic Voting Reform Package

On Monday, New York State Senate majority leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, the first Democrat to hold the position since 2010, will introduce a package of highly-anticipated voting reform bills with her Assembly counterpart, Speaker Carl Heastie. The bills include early voting, same-day voter registration, and the consolidation of state and local primaries, and are expected to pass immediately: a signal to voters that the Democratically-controlled legislature is serious about raising New York to the national standard.

New York is currently one of twelve states without an early voting option, a measure that can alleviate crowding and confusion at polling sites. Legislation expected to pass on Monday would allow New Yorkers to vote in person starting two weekends before any election.
