Governor Cuomo Signs New York Automatic Voter Registration Act of 2020 into Law

“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.

“This new, single application will serve as both an application for services and a voter registration application.”

Governor Cuomo signed the New York Automatic Voter Registration Act of 2020 (S.8806 / A.8280C) into law, requiring designated State agencies to establish an automatic voter registration system as proposed by the Governor in State of the State in 2019 and 2020.

I would have been nice if all the polling workers at Boston NY district 5 had masks on today when i voted at 3:30
This interactive map has all the Erie County BoE early voting sites. bit.ly/ErieEV
My sister who lives about 400 miles away in NY voted and was told to place ballet face down but machine said face up.. when I voted in WNY the attendant got all nervous I was going to ruin the machine and to place face down.. what is the correct protocol when scanning in person votes? Nickie Pollacek
To Sara Metcalf : ✅ ✅ MAP VIEW!!!! ✅✅ 😊😊😊😊😊😊 THANK YOU for posting this very useful "map view" of early voting sites! I've tried to get the Board of Elections to make a map like this available, but they seemed incapable of providing this logical, basic tool to help the voter. ( Note*This map was created by a user.👍 ) 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌 📌
Just drove out a bit in the country to vote, as lines too long here in Lancaster, about a 15-minute drive through gorgeous fall countryside. No wait. One thing I'm wondering though: the nice lady who took my license was logging me in on her screen, suddenly says "oops." I said, Oops? As in seriously, what do you mean oops? She said something like, Nothing just forgot to hit enter... or something to that effect. If she were partisan and not honest and or talkative and sees my party affiliation... see where I'm going? The scanner would still take my form but would it count if the election worker doesn't hit enter at that registration screen??
Why was the Lackawanna senior center used for voting? they basically closed off the big hall, crammed you into single file without 6 ft marks to follow for social distancing.2 way traffic in and out of building, instead of 1 way traffic. they put you in smallest room available with at least 10 people at a time. bumping into people coming and going. Did anyone from the Erie county board of elections follow any of the Cuomo scientific guidelines!!! really
Is there a MAP that pinpoints all the early voting sites in Erie County NY? ( map view would let us see which early voting site is closest to our home.)
Whoever you have answering phones today needs to go on a break. Their attitude was horrible when I called asking about early voting for my mom
Please Everyone you must do your part and vote !!!!!

Really Erie County? I got a new voter registration card when i moved last year, and now no record of me? You will not stop my vote no matter how many obstacles you put up!!!
