New York Law Journal

By: Jerry H. Goldfeder

Writing in the New York Law Journal, Jerry Goldfeder argues the city should exercise its state constitutional and statutory authority to enact election reforms.

Goldfeder notes that, as the outgoing chair of the New York City Affairs Committee of the New York City Bar Association, he recently testified at the City Council's Charter Revision Commission, proposing that it adopt our "Democracy Agenda" — mandating early voting, enhanced registration and enrollment opportunities, no-excuse absentee voting and instant run-off for our municipal elections. Unfortunately, he writes, New York has trailed behind in voting access.
