Less than one week from today is Election Day! Voters across New York State (and all the states in the Union) will have the opportunity to go to the polls and weigh in on the critical issues that matter to them. In addition to voting for our representatives in Washington, D.C. there are key elections in New York State that need your input: Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, state senate, state assembly and three ballot measures. No matter how you vote, it is important to make your voice heard.
Here are the three ballot measures that New Yorkers will consider on November 4:
- Creating an independent panel to redraw state legislative district lines every ten years
- Permitting electronic copies of bills instead of requiring paper versions for the legislature
- Authorizing a two billion dollar Bond Act to support technology updates in schools
Also, remember that New York State requires voters to be registered at least 25 days prior to an election—there is no same-day voter registration. (more…)
