Starting October 26, for the first time in history, New Yorkers can vote early!
We no longer have to choose between our personal responsibilities, our work, and casting our vote.
Instead, New Yorkers have 10 days to choose from; vote early from Saturday, October 26 through Sunday, November 3, or vote on Election Day, Tuesday, November 5.
It’s imperative that we let our communities know about Early Voting because 2019 is our first chance to make sure that early voting is enacted properly and equitably for all New Yorkers. Encouraging people to vote early this year will allow counties to identify improvements ahead of the 2020 Presidential Elections.
Let NY Vote (LNYV) is a nonpartisan, statewide coalition of grassroots networks, civil rights and civil liberties organizations, re-entry communities, good government groups, unions, social service providers, immigrant rights groups, and everyday citizens fighting to improve our elections by making registering and voting more accessible and equitable for every eligible New Yorker.
In the past three years, they have brought the issue of voting reform front and center in New York and successfully advocated for the passage of a dozen landmark voting rights reforms — the first in New York in over a century — that ensure New Yorkers have more time to vote, an easier time voting, and modern voter registration systems. These pro-voter laws include Early Voting, consolidated primaries, pre-registration for 16- and 17-year olds, and more. You can see them all at LetNYvote.org
