Written Testimony in Support of New York Voting Rights Act (S.7528)

Court Level
District Court

On March 11, the Campaign Legal Center and More Equitable Democracy submitted written testimony in support of the New York Voting Rights Act (S. 7528) because it would allow communities of color across the state of New York to participate equally in the election of their representatives. In particular it allows for the adoption of remedies like ranked choice voting and cumulative voting that can enfranchise integrated communities of color (while the federal Voting Rights Act still only offers protections to relatively segregated minority communities).
