Brooklyn, NY – “The proposed John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act in Albany is unnecessary, unmanageable, and overly expensive. The New York State Conservative Party strongly opposes its passage.
“Voting in New York has never been easier or more inclusive. Ballots are printed in multiple languages; early voting takes place for a full 10 days prior to an election, and diverse slates of candidates are elected to public office every year under the current system. There is no need to add new, bureaucratic and redundant layers to a voting process that already works.
“This proposal seeks to resolve a problem that doesn’t exist at enormous cost to taxpayers. It should be added to the growing pile of bad ideas out of Albany.”
