BVA General Meeting
February 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join BVA to celebrate our AMAZING WINS for voting reform in New York, and discuss the important work that remains.
In January, our state government passed significant voting reforms including early voting, same day registration, no excuse absentee voting, pre-registration of 16 and 17 year olds, and registration portability. This is incredibly exciting, but our job is not done! Now we must ensure that early voting and other priorities are funded during the budget period. We will also continue to push for the passage of automatic voter registration, the re-enfranchisement of people on parole, and electronic poll books before the close of this year’s legislation session.
At our meeting, we will be joined by special guest Jarret Berg, Interim Executive Director of the New York Democratic Lawyers Council, who will break down the legislation that was passed and discuss implementation of the new laws.
We will meet in the Trustees Room, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn Public Library, 10 Grand Army Plaza.
All are welcome!
