NYDLC’S Jarret Berg Discusses Voting Rights with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer

On August 23, NYDLC’s Executive Director Jarret Berg, Brooklyn NAACP President L. Joy Williams, and Brennan Center Counsel Adam Gitlin joined Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer to discuss voting rights on Represent NYC.

 

 

The participants conversed about the abundance of restrictive voting laws around the US, including those in New York. They also discussed pro-voter reforms and the importance of raising awareness about early voter registration deadlines--New York's is 25 days prior to each Election--an unforgiving procedural hurdle that ensnares thousands of otherwise-eligible voters each election.
