The New York Democratic Lawyers Council (NYDLC) strongly supports the enactment of legislation to modernize our voter registration system and streamline our elections. We need your help!

At each step in the election process, New York’s outdated voting laws discourage participation. As a result, nearly 2 million eligible New Yorkers are not even registered, and New York consistently ranks near the bottom in turnout (41st in 2016). We need to overhaul the way New York votes to better suit our busy lives and provide New Yorkers with a reasonable opportunity to exercise their fundamental civil rights.
