Voting is a constitutionally protected right, not a privilege. At Common Cause New York we work to improve elections administration so that all New Yorkers can vote in an efficient and safe environment.
Long lines and chaos at polling places has the same impact as more overt forms of voter suppression: it discourages voters from voting, We developed a mobile application called PollWatch to empower voters to report problems at the polls.
We're fighting to pass early voting to make it easier for seniors and working people to get to the polls. And we work year-round to make voting more accessible and convenient for all New Yorkers.
