Ensure that voters can cast their ballots safely

Because of the threat of the coronavirus, Governor Cuomo issued and order allowing people to vote via absentee ballot for the recent June primary election, but no such policy has been adopted for the general election in November.

Please take a moment to urge Governor Cuomo and your state legislators to enact legislation to allow absentee voting in November for New Yorkers concerned about in-person voting because of the coronavirus.
