Study Shows Election Boards Blocking NY'ers From Voting

North Country Gazette

"Elections are the backbone of democracy, and New Yorkers should be able to have faith that the people who run our elections are able to fairly and fully apply the law," said Scott Novakowski, program associate in the Democracy Program at Demos. "This report proves that voters are not only misinformed about their eligibility, they are subject to unnecessary, burdensome and illegal documentation requirements for voter registration. This survey should be a clarion for our officials and elected leaders who oversee the maintenance of our election systems."
