Democratic elections commissioners in New York are backing several of the governor’s voting reforms and suggesting some of their own.
Earlier this week, Cuomo pushed for modernizing voter registration, adding early voting and vote by mail, and making election day a state holiday.
The Democratic Caucus of the New York State Elections Commissioner Association would also like to see early voting. Plus, they would like the state’s two primaries consolidated to a single day. And, they would like an end to fusion voting. Fusion voting lets candidates run on multiple ballot lines, but the commissioners say it just confuses voters.
The head of that caucus, Dustin Czarny, joins us to discuss. He is also the Democrat elections commissioner for Onondaga County.
