My understanding of the NY voting rights bill today is that it is awesome. Thank you #LetNYVote coalition--the long term impact will be felt for decades.
This #LetNYVote legislation is so long overdue. New state senate is starting off strong -early voting stations starting 10 days prior to an election -same day registration -preregistration - vote by mail -Election Day consolidation A lot of things Ny is majorly behind on..
The Senate leadership announces their voting and campaign finance reform bills and promises more to come. A happy day for democracy in Albany! #LetNYvote.
Majority Leader @AndreaSCousins: We should not fear restricting the flow of money into our electoral system. Let’s all remember we don’t serve just the powerful or those with the biggest checkbooks or most LLCs. #LetNYvote.
Majority Leader @AndreaSCousins: As Elected leaders, we should not fear making it easier for those who are eligible to vote, we should welcome it. We need more voices not fewer. #LetNYvote.
Allowing ALL busy New Yorkers the opportunity to #vote absentee (by mail or in person/early) is a matter of equality and basic fairness. Today both houses of the legislature begin the process of amending the NYS Constitution to do exactly that. #LetNYvote!.
Majority Leader @AndreaSCousins: We are about fixing our broken system. We are about restoring trust in our Government. #LetNYvote.
I can attest that Susan is indeed fearless! @commoncauseny @LetNYvote.
We’re live from the New York State Senate, where our conference is about to vote for historic reforms to help more New Yorkers participate in our elections..
Majority Leader @AndreaSCousins: Today we are saying New York is about tearing barriers down. We are about opportunities. #LetNYvote.
Majority Leader @AndreaSCousins: I talked about this during my opening session remarks. As leaders in this great state, we have a choice. We can follow a path of building barriers or tearing barriers down. #LetNYvote.
Susan Lerner, fearless leader of @commoncauseny, waiting for the State Senate press conference on voting to start. #LetNYVote.
Voting rights are civil rights! Proud to stand with @BKVoters and @LetNYvote in this fight, thrilled to be in Albany today for this historic day! (And grateful for vacation time!) 🙌🏽💪🏾💪🏼🙌🏼.
What is this feeling I am feeling. Is it…optimism? That can’t be right..
I’d be interested in reading more thoughts on whether the #LetNYVote coalition’s success at retaking Senate and pushing Gov. Cuomo to finally accept real voting rights reform is another example of networked public sphere organizing, as in @YBenkler’s study of #NetNeutrality work..
#LetNYvote has TURNED OUT for the press conference on this historic day. Thank YOU for all the hard work you did to get us here!.
The NY Assembly @NYSA_majority is scheduled to go into session at 12:30pm. Committee meetings off the floor discussing historic voting reform package. Watch what promises to be a lively debate at #LetNYVote.
@NYSenDems press conference is starting soon. Stay tuned for live video (we hope) here #LetNYvote.
Everyone getting ready for major #VotingReform announcement! #LetNYVote.
And utterly different from our feelings towards the world. To regard ethical notions in the dock, try Tomahawk! #LetNYVote #TomahawkAmps.
Yes! Thank you @LetNYvote & @commoncauseny #VotingRights #democracy.
Today, the New York legislature is set to pass: ✅early voting ✅pre-registration for 16 & 17 year olds ✅same day voter registration ✅consolidated primary day ✅portable voter registration ✅no excuse vote by mail #LetNYVote #VotingRights @commoncauseny.
You guys. Today is the best day. Constitutional amendments on same day registration and no-excuse absentee voting just passed out of committee. New York is going to be a leader in protecting the right to vote. #LetNYVote.
