NYC Campaign Finance Board Statement on the Passage of Online Voter Registration in the New York State Senate
The NYC Campaign Finance Board's Executive Director Amy Loprest issued the following statement:
"I welcome the news that the state Senate has passed legislation to authorize an online voter registration system that’s accessible to all New Yorkers. I urge the state Assembly to take up and pass the bill, as well. New voter registrations have dropped by nearly 50% so far this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. We must do all we can to ensure that all New Yorkers can fully participate in our democracy. The CFB's online system will allow thousands of young voters and new Americans to register to vote in the election this November. "
