Andrea Stewart-Cousins

"Each year the State Senate begins session by passing voting reforms that languished under the previous Republican majority, including early voting, automatic registration, and a better absentee voting process. The situation in New York City is a national embarrassment and must be dealt with promptly and properly. In the coming weeks, the Senate will be holding hearings on this situation and will seek to pass reform legislation as a result at the earliest opportunity."
