Public Hearing: Automatic Voter Registration in the State of New York

At this Senate Elections Committee Public Hearing, we will hear testimony on how an Automatic Voter Registration system could best be implemented in New York State. Voting is the right that protects all other rights, yet New York is consistently ranked among the worst in the country in voter turnout. At a time when voting rights are under assault at the federal level and across the country, it is more important than ever to expand and protect our state's democracy. Automatic Voter Registration is a straightforward and evidenced-backed policy that would remove barriers between voters and the ballot box and make it easier for people to make their voices heard.

If you would like to testify, please fill out the attached hearing notice form and send it to Senator Myrie's Chief of Staff, Edline Jacquet, at jacquet@nysenate.gov
