Cuomo proposes changes to NY absentee ballot counting, early voting
Governor Andrew Cuomo is set to push a number of election reform proposals in New York. These include allowing no-excuse absentee voting, extending the time voters have to request absentee ballots, extending early voting times, requiring early voting sites to stay open later, and allowing absentee ballots to be processed as they are received. The latter-most proposal would help speed up the counting and reporting process for absentee ballots.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
