Early voting, automatic and same-day registration may be coming to New York under newly proposed bill – The Daily Orange

“There are a lot of people who wanted to take part in this election and they thought ‘I’m in a state of early voting,’” he said. “They came into our office wanting to vote, and they can’t.”

Czarny said Onondaga County doesn’t see long lines at polling places because over 180 poll sites are located throughout the region, but added that there are still delays during peak times in presidential elections.

“If we have early voting and automated registration, a lot of court orders will be unnecessary,” the elections commissioner said, adding that they issued more than 200 court orders last year on Election Day to allow people to register and vote.
