News Release

(Friday, Dec. 22, 2017) — Governor Andrew Cuomo unveiled his Democracy Agenda yesterday to ensure transparency in the electoral process and institute early voting and automatic same-day voter registration in New York State. 

“Governor Cuomo’s Democracy Agenda is the strongest plan to reform our elections that I have seen in some time,” said Mayor Lovely A. Warren. “The Governor’s proposal will make it easier for New Yorkers to vote, while also strengthening protections for our elections from outside influence, an issue that was of grave consequence in the 2016 election. Once again, under Governor Cuomo’s leadership, New York is leading the nation in standing up for progressive, common-sense policies that will have a generational impact on New York State.”
