ABOUT THIS STATE
New York! Pizza! The Yankees! A big ass waterfall! Sorry for screaming, it's the New Yorker in me. Look, we don't need to tell you how big of a deal you are. I mean, you're home to 1 out of every 38 people in this country. With a rep that huge, you have to set an example by making your voice heard in the polls. Face it, without democracy, your government wouldn't have been able to vote against bringing e-scooters to NYC. New York has two main elections in 2022: Its primary election will take place on June 28, and the general will be held on November 8. Here's everything you need to know about voting in the Empire State. (Source: Ballot Ready)

what's new in new york voting since 2022
New York passed 22 new voting laws in 2021. That's right, 22! Don't worry though, we're on top of it. Here's what you need to know about the changes. The state is on track to create a new online absentee ballot application system, as well as a new absentee ballot tracking system. You should also know that the deadline to submit an absentee ballot application by mail has changed. Instead of 7 days before the election, it now has to received 15 days before the election. The deadline to submit an absentee ballot request in person is still the same. While mail-in voting was available to all voters in 2020 due to the coronavirus, New York will likely return to pre-COVID status quo in 2022. Make sure you have another plan to vote, if you're not eligible for absentee by-mail voting.learn more

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
