I was pleased to take part today in the first session of the Online Voter Registration and Automatic Voter Registration Stakeholder Task Force established by the NYS Board of Elections.

With colleagues and experts from across the state, I will be focused on continuing to remove barriers to voting rights while ensuring the continued security and integrity of our elections.

It’s a great challenge and honor, and I look forward to it.

"The new law designates the Department of Motor Vehicles and other State agencies that interact directly with New York residents to work with the State Board of Elections to integrate agency and voter registration applications.

Registered Democrat here. A very worried Democrat. Worried for the state of and future of our party. Fearing such a big swing to a socialist left.
Hey, You know what? I love you, but I want stickers when I vote!
Vote Larry Sharpe 2018!
