 2/15: Legislative Affairs Committee Meeting--RSVP below!

Join NYDLC for the first 2017 meeting of our Legislative Affairs Committee to discuss our Pro-Voter Election Reform Agenda. At this meeting, we will focus on:

  • Planning and preparing for multiple pro-voter advocacy days in Albany,
  • Developing an outreach strategy for "2017 Caucus Weekend",
  • Identifying ways to support/protect voter-friendly budget proposals during tripartite negotiations
  • Finalizing and proofing our National Voting Rights Agenda, 

We are proud that many prominent N.Y. Democrats have called for pro-voter election reforms in 2017. Now that our issues have their attention, we need to have their back, and we must keep them focused on strengthening voting rights by modernizing voter registration and election administration processes. 

NYDLC continues to advocate for convenient pro-voter reforms like bringing Early Vote to New York (a goal NYDLC has pursued for several years), revolutionizing the way we register voters by enacting a system of automatic voter registration, same-day registration, simplified ballot design, registration portability, online registration, pre-registration for the next generation of voters, and more. 

NYDLC will also be rolling out a National Voting Rights Agenda, which identifies several top priorities that, if adopted nationwide, would enhance our democracy by making our electoral process fairer, more inclusive, and more accessible to the ~50 million eligible voters who are not currently registered to vote.

But these are big priorities, and we can't achieve them without your relentless dedication, active participation, and continued support. RSVP below to join our next meeting. 

Dial in option: If you can't attend in person, all members are welcome to join the meeting by phone. Please RSVP below and you will receive credentials for the call by email.
