Voting rights are under siege across the United States. From restrictive voter ID laws to cuts in early voting, states have been making it harder for people to vote, especially low-income people and people of color. Meanwhile, New York has some of the most restrictive voting laws in the country and one of the lowest turnout rates. As ballot access is challenged around the country, New York should affirm voting as a fundamental right and expand voting access. We need to protect voting rights and election infrastructure, enhance transparency of campaign contributions and root out corruption in public offices.
