“New York State may soon join most other states in allowing its citizens to cast a ballot before Election Day in a bid to improve its low voter turnout rates,” CBS New Yorkreports.
“The state Senate and Assembly both approved legislation Monday that would require counties to allow in-person voting up to 10 days before an election. The measure now goes to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who supports the idea.”
“New York was among the worst 10 states for turnout in both the 2016 and 2018 elections, continuing a long trend of lower-than-average voter participation.”
