The goal of the public hearings is to seek comment about issues that arise under the Election Law. The October hearings in Nassau County, Westchester County and New York City are the fourth in a series that began in March and continued in April and May, which are dedicated to increasing awareness of election policy and voting. During the 2009 session the Elections Committee held hearings that focused on issues involving voter registration; voting/casting a ballot and poll sites; and campaign finance reform.
This dialogue between lawmakers and the public is part of the Senate’s commitment to beginning a robust committee process, and the development of sound public policy through open dialogue and an overall transparent legislative procedure.
